Summary: Can't deactivate "Enable flow control" setting
Platform: Ubuntu Packages
AssignedTo: konsole-devel kde org
ReportedBy: ken.manheimer gmail com
Version: 2.1 (using KDE 4.0.83)
Installed from: Ubuntu Packages
in konsole's Advanced tab of Edit current profile, the checkbox "Enable flow control using Ctrl+S , Ctrl+Q" is set and grayed out, so that the user cannot configure konsole to disable flow control. this is a problem for applications that handle the handshaking themselves, and use flow control keys - ctl-s - for other things: emacs, nano, etc.
a workaround is to use 'stty -ixon' to disable flow control in the terminal. that must be done locally, before any remote logins, and it sucks to have to remember to do so. some won't figure it out.
this was a known problem in kde 4.1 beta 1, according to
(search for "Enable flow control".)
