Konsole color scheme has changed and can't revert it

Few days before while I was using the computer the power went out and after restarting the terminal has changed( The color scheme has changed to Breeze). I can't even revert it how it was before. (It was Sweetified color scheme.). But if I open it as root, It opens normally. Is there a way to change it? I can't even add a new color scheme, it changes in the next open.2021-11-01_15-05

If you want to hide the user and host, you should make it unrecognizable in photos everywhere.
In photos we do not need and want from the terminal (here konsole) anyway.

Have you already read in the manual(s)?

I did it cz the name seems stupid, Btw which manual?

This one?

You do not post your inxi, but I think you use KDE and the "konsole"
so I think you must look in there manuals. help

BTW, what means cz?

You do not post your inxi, but I think you use KDE and the "konsole"

BTW, what means cz?

short for for cause.

For those who need to use a translation tool cz is not appropriate in the forum, please write out everything here, thank you.


Do you have a solution for my problem?


  1. Make sure you press apply after selecting the color scheme.
  2. It could be that you are editing a new Konsole profile, but the Default (read only) one is being used. Go to Settings -> Manage Profiles and make sure the one you modified is set as default.
  1. I have pressed that.
  2. There's nothing named Manage Profiles.

Btw, the permissions as follows.2021-11-01_22-21

Is this why I can't changed it permanently?

I can't take screenshots properly on my system, but it's there. Global menu Settings -> Manage Profiles (or) Configure Konsole and go to Profiles tab. Or just click around and you'll find it.

Well I have a option switch profile in the Switch profile. And If I change it to garuda it changes to the color scheme sweetified. But If i open a new instance of the konsole its no more applied. Which means it changes into the Default profile. Therefore I need to change the profile permanently.

Here, did a fresh restart just for you.


It works. Thank you @zoeruda. You made my day.
