            Bug ID: 364391
           Summary: Cannot remove "- Konsole" suffix from the titlebar
           Product: konsole
           Version: 16.04.1
          Platform: Other
                OS: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: konsole-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: tibbs at math.uh.edu

Konsole has an option "Show application name on the titlebar", which .  This
option appears to do nothing in current version of Konsole.

There's a bug reporting exactly the opposite at
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=343995, but the first comment echoes this
issue and gives some explanation.  I'll paste it in here.

In the latest version,  the "Enable Show "- Konsole" on the titlebar in general
settings." is ignored now as it appears that KF5/Qt5 always shows the "-
Konsole".  I'm not sure if it is possible to remove it now.


"On some desktop platforms (including Windows and Unix), the application name
(from QGuiApplication::applicationDisplayName) is added at the end of the
window title, if set. This is done by the QPA plugin, so it is shown to the
user, but isn't part of the windowTitle string."

Many of us would like for the Konsole title bar to be completely controlled by
the shell, and so not being able to get rid of that bit is pretty annoying. 
But at least the option in the configuration dialog should go away if it's
simply not possible to actually remove that bit from the title bar.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In konsole, select Settings -> Configure Konsole...
2. Under General, make sure "Show application name on the titlebar" is not
3. Click Apply or OK.

Actual Results:  
"-- Konsole" suffix still appears in the window title bar.

Expected Results:  
"-- Konsole" suffiex does not appear in the window title bar, leaving the title
to reflect exactly what's specified by the profile's tag title format.
