Installation of Konsole

[Note]

Note

In non-plasma environments, the konsole scrollbar and its handle do not show up well. If desired, apply the optional patch to the package:

patch -Np1 -i ../konsole-22.04.1-scrollbar-1.patch

The patch makes the scrollbar light gray with a small white border. The handle is dark gray. If desired, the colors may be changed to taste by editing the patch.

Install Konsole by running the following commands:

mkdir build &&
cd    build &&

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$KF5_PREFIX \
      -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release         \
      -DBUILD_TESTING=OFF                \
      -Wno-dev .. &&
make

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install
