           Summary: option to disable zmodem
           Product: konsole
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: SuSE RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: konsole-devel kde org
        ReportedBy: felder path berkeley edu

Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.2.1)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs

I prefer to use zssh to handle zmodem transfers.  While I applaud the addition of additional features in konsole, it'd be nice to have configuration options to turn off the additional features if they are not desired.

The reasons I'd rather not use the konsole zmodem functionality are:

1.  There's no progress display for the file transfer.
2.  Files have a habit of not going where you save them.  For example, for a file named "file" if I'm logged into a remote server and type sz file...the dialogue pops up and asks where to save it.  If I type /home/username/bin/file the file goes to /home/username/file

Rather than request the above changes, it'd be better I think to allow the user to choose their own zmodem functionality should they wish behavior different than what konsole provides.
