• \[SOLVED\] Terminal not installed?


    Ya, no terminal. Tried the shortcuts, manual launch, asking it nicely. nothing.

    There’s an option for it in the Lancelot menu editor options called Terminal Emulator but it doesn’t show in the menu or from alt+f2.

    Searched google, no results. Why would there be EVERYONE HAS TERMINAL.

  • This is an issue you are experiencing purely due to the latest Arch update. Go here to read the latest news, [https://www.archlinux.org/news/transition-of-kde-software-to-the-kde-framework-and-qt-5/][0]">[https://www.archlinux.org/news/transiti][1] … -and-qt-5/

    You will see that it says the packages that contain the “kdebase-” prefix have all been renamed thus the installer is looking for packages that technically no longer exist. This will be addressed as soon as possible but this update on the Arch side of things is GIGANTIC so it may take some time.

    The solution is rather simple though, open up “PacmanXG” search for and install “konsole” and you’re done.

  • Thanks it worked, except that there’s a wierd spacing issue with the square and the letters being typed. Not a huge deal but its rather annoying when trying to edit long or multi-line commands.

    Yep, that is a bug in Konsole with the Font Selector in the profile. I already found the solution to this as well and I reported a bug to KDE about it. :)

    Solution:

    [*:35j93ngm]Edit the current profile (right click anywhere in the empty space of the shell window)[/*:m:35j93ngm]
    [*:35j93ngm]“San Serif” will be selected as the font, however when you click to change the font Monospace is already selected.[/*:m:35j93ngm]
    [*:35j93ngm]Select any other font and apply it.[/*:m:35j93ngm]
    [*:35j93ngm]Go back and choose Monospace again and it resets back to normal.[/*:m:35j93ngm][/list:o:35j93ngm]
