I installed Konsole and then Kate in Fedora 23. How do I get the Konsole (Terminal?) plugin (I want to have a Konsole (or Terminal) window in Kate, at the bottom of the screen)?

    Three points: (a) use dnf, (b) don't install the source-rpm (you need a binary-rpm), and (c) you probably should install from repository rather than try to build your own. Just sudo dnf install kate-plugins should work. – Thomas Dickey Jun 2 '16 at 7:57
  • Perfect! Thanks. I would just add to install konsole too! – user189035 Jun 5 '16 at 20:10

    I overlooked that (because I usually install every terminal emulator). – Thomas Dickey Jun 5 '16 at 20:14

You would have to

  • ensure that konsole is installed, to use the plugin.
  • install the kate-plugins package (not installed by default).

    sudo dnf install kate-plugins

When that's done, the plugins will show up:

Select the checkbox, click on Apply and OK. Then you should see the Terminal icon at the bottom of the window. Clicking on that starts a shell, as shown:
