I login to remote hosts with small one-line scripts, such as:

r1: ssh -C user1@host1

r2: ssh -C user2@host2

etc. But when I login with these commands, the Konsole tab title is not changed to (user)host, as if I was logged in by typing ssh -C user@host. Is there a way to fix it? Thanks.

  • please provide full example of what you tried and what does not work. I suspect that switches -tt might do the job, but if you provide different inputs/outputs to these scripts, then there is no way how the remote server could communicate the remote addresses with the local one.

In your script, try to replacing:

ssh -C user@host


exec ssh -C user@host

Tried with konsole from kde 5.
