     Nice job

    Nice job; this makes for a nice one click remote job launch. Adding a command that can be sent would be nice. I've tweaked the code a little to give me a quick way to achieve this (didn't go so far as to add the field myself). The -p, -r, and -l parameters for ssh needed to be pushed before the hostname for me to be able to add something like "yum -y update". (very handy little plasmoid)

     Use running konsole

     by fjwcash on: Jun 1 2010

    Any way to get this to open a new tab in an already running konsole, instead of opening up a whole new konsole window for each connection?

    If that was possible, then it would make for a usable "bookmark" replacement for konsole, until such time as ssh bookmarks work in konsole. :)

    Also, having the ability to group the connections in the plasmoid would be handy, especially if there was an "open all connections in this group" feature. Combined with the "start connection in tab" feature above, this could replace the bookmarks in konsole completely.

    Finally, is there any chance that all the fields (including port) could be made optional? With the hostname being the only mandatory field? Otherwise, it duplicates all of the configuration data that is already in ~/.ssh/config

    Keep up the good work. It's certainly a useful plasmoid.

    Actually, what would be even better, is if it would scan ~/.ssh/config and automatically add entries for each Host line.

    Since everything is already in the SSH config file, there's no need for a separate config file for this plasmoid (unless you want to keep it separate from the SSH config, although I really can't see why you would).

    Then it would become a quick'n easy shortcut for all the hosts in the SSH config file.

    "Any way to get this to open a new tab in an already running konsole, instead of opening up a whole new konsole window for each connection?"

    Agree, would be great if this feature will be implemented a/t soon.

    Anyway great plasmoid, THANK YOU

    Thanks for the nice plasmoid.
    When I set up my first server it did not use my default wallet and I had to create a wallet with the name "kdewallet". Is there a way either for it to use the default wallet or to define the one to use.

    Keep up the good work.

     Konsole size

     by babydragon on: Sep 16 2010
    Score 50%

    When I use password to connect remote server, I found that the konsole can diplay only part of the characters.
    On the manual of pexpect module, there is a note: "Note that if you change the window size of the parent the SIGWINCH
    signal will not be passed through to the child."
    So is this possible to change the window size of child process after the process is spawned or received SIGWINCH?

    PS, this is a great Plasmoid
    Thank You!

    thanks for the nice plasmoid.
    Unfortunately, for me, it is quite inconvenient that the new connection opens in a tab in an existing konsole. I always have lots of different konsoles running and the connection opens in the konsole I first opened, which can be on a different workspace.
    Is it possible to include the possibility that the connection opens in a new window?

    How do you like Plasma 5?
     The best KDE Desktop ever.
     Definitely a nice improvement.
     Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
     I do not like some of the changes.
     KDE is taking the wrong way.
     I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
     I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
