Yes I set a break point at line 4 of the following code

#include <iostream>

int main(int argc, char **argv) {
    std::cout << "Hello, world!" << std::endl;
    return 0;

Yes I have tried both Run->Debug Launch and the Debug icon in the toolbar.

Yes, I can use gdb from the konsole by just typing "gdb executable".

No. When I click on Debug, nothing happens. Kdev seems idle. On the contrary, 
when I click on Build or Execute, Kdev switches to the Build or Run
