Ctrl + Alt +T not working?

Hello all. I've screwed up my "Open Konsole" shortcut but I'm not sure how I did it. I thought I'd fix it in Settings > Shortcuts, but When I saw it I thought I may have deleted a whole Konsole section by mistake so, I did a fresh install in a VM and took a look at Settings > Shortcuts. I don't see a Konsole section. Under Custom, I do see a Konsole shortcut under Examples, but it's not enabled. Nevertheless, Ctrl + Alt + T opens a Konsole in the VM.

I'm pretty sure I could fix it by adding a new shortcut, but I was wondering if anyone might know how to fix it properly, the way it was. How was the shortcut originally configured, if anyone might know. This might also give me a clue as to what I may have done wrong. Thanks for any help.

Ooops...forgot my

How strange...It's apparently missing from the fresh install but still works until it just stops working. Here is the inxi from the VM install I just made and a screenshot of the shortcut settings....

McFly: Importing shell history for the first time. This may take a minute or two...done.

I don't understand how it's working in the VM, but glad I mentioned it. I will add the section to my actual install. Thanks, @dalto .

EDIT: Looks like my Copy Screenshot to Clipboard button is broken too. Had to save it to get it up here. Wasn't pasting right.

EDIT2: The iso is ....Well I went to Dolphin and hit rename to copy the iso name, accidentally deleted the name, and without a cancel button, tried to save it clicking the X before hitting Enter. Didn't work. The name was deleted. They should rethink the way the Rename button works and make like other file managers with a way to cancel the rename. The way they have it sucks. I just haven't installed Thunar yet.

In Dolphin just hit the Escape Key { esc }.

Hahaaa! I actually thought of that after and wondered if it would've worked. Thanks for the info. You answered the question in my mind. I also wondered about killing it with killall or htop or even kill PID, but I really haven't used kill since finding out htop was interactive...lol.

This is easily reversed when using Dolphin. If you make a mistake renaming, simply leave the name blank and left click with the cursor onscreen. If you leave the name blank, when you click the name will automatically revert to the original name.

Also another handy Dolphin feature is adding buttons to its GUI. Simply add an undo/redo button and you can automatically undo rename/delete and move operations. Easy peasy.

Now that you mention it, I've seen that. I actually like Dolphin very much. I only add Thunar for if I want a root file manager because...well i don't remember why...I think I had trouble running dolphin as root. And that was before I saw the root options in the right click menu. I don't add Thunar anymore, really. I just said that because I was mad that it deleted the iso name and I failed to save it. I appreciate the tips, guys. Dolphin makes thunar look like an elementary school program.

GUI programs should really not be executed as root. An excellent alternative is the TUI program Midnight Commander. It is a dual pane file manager that runs in terminal, but has full mouse support. It has many powerful features that can be easily run as root with:

sudo mc

Midnight Commander (mc) is a real life saver utility.

That's funny. I just told @mandog in a PM that I probably have some bad practices that need correcting like an hour ago. And that must be one. I honesty do most file management without a flie manager, I was just trying to grab a name quickly while in mid sentance, but mc sounds interesting. I'll take a look.

I do, however, love the extract button in file managers because I haven't learned to extract some archive formats in the command line yet.

MC is an excellent terminal program with full double click mouse support. The only downside is it is a little garish with its default color scheme. You can however install alternate skins to match your default color scheme.

If you read the documentation you can even create shortcuts to start the file manager in 2 predifened different directories as root or as a regular user.

It has a built in text editor for root config editing and is truly an amazingly poweful program. I can't recommend mc enough.

That's great, @tbg !! I love terminal programs. Thanks!
