  What I do is run 'bash -l': 

  Settings -> Configure Konsole -> Session

  In the "Session" box, hilite "Linux Console" *and* "Shell", then in the 
  "Execute" entry box, replace 'bash' with 'bash -l'.

man bash:
  -l        Make bash act as if it had been invoked as a login shell (see
            INVOCATION below).
