Description Jonathan Felder 2004-05-17 22:12:13 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.2.1)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs

I prefer to use zssh to handle zmodem transfers.  While I applaud the addition of additional features in konsole, it'd be nice to have configuration options to turn off the additional features if they are not desired.

The reasons I'd rather not use the konsole zmodem functionality are:

1.  There's no progress display for the file transfer.
2.  Files have a habit of not going where you save them.  For example, for a file named "file" if I'm logged into a remote server and type sz file...the dialogue pops up and asks where to save it.  If I type /home/username/bin/file the file goes to /home/username/file

Rather than request the above changes, it'd be better I think to allow the user to choose their own zmodem functionality should they wish behavior different than what konsole provides.

Woops sorry...I meant to select wish for this and not bug.
Comment 2 Kurt Hindenburg 2005-03-22 08:00:42 UTC
According to the README.kiosk you should be able to put this in konsolerc:

[KDE Action Restrictions]

I'll have to test this to see if it works.

Personally, I'd like to remove zmodem from Konsole.

Comment 3 Kurt Hindenburg 2005-03-29 05:03:04 UTC
Put this in your konsolerc:

[KDE Action Restrictions]

The first line will remove the Edit->ZModem Upload item; the second line will prevent konsole from recognizing zmodem transfers.

CVS commit by hindenburg: 

Allow user to disable ZModem upload and download via kiosk.
