How to Change cursor in Konsole // I know I have done it before But now I can't find it :frowning:

Thank you :eyes:


Can't find it :worried:

It's literally the 3rd. search result clicking that link.

You should start training your search skills. While enthusiasm is great, we don't have the capacities to supply a constant rate of 50 threads per month per user - especially not for such questions that can really easily answered by using a search engine :slight_smile:


No the correct answer is

bind \cr forward-char

and when I clicked on your link
I came to a black screen

The above is more likely to be

50 threads per Day for me  lol thanks

8 posts were split to a new topic: Lost fish config

What happened to the topic of this thread?
It originally started for a question regarding changing the cursor shape in Konsole (for which there was no expected result mentioned).

Now it's about a lost fish config?


This topic is being closed for failure to respect 1 Thread = 1 Issue.
Threads must not become a mess by changing topic at will for unrelated other issues.

Also be precise on your expected result.
In this situation, nothing was mentioned, therefore people thought the result would follow Konsole's standard. Those standards are found in Konsole's settings through the GUI and there are 3 options.

This corresponds to the solution tagged on post #4.
