I am using Kali Linux, which uses GNOME 3. I have installed Konsole and added Konsole to Favorites (the second icon from top). However, whenever I launch new window of Konsole, I get separate new icons in the launcher (2 Konsole windows - 2 icons in the bottom). I also cannot move these 2 icons around.

I want to make my Konsole windows to have the same behavior with the default Gnome Terminal (the 3rd icon from bottom) where 2 windows are grouped into the same icon. Thank you.

enter image description here


I figured it out. I don't know why but renaming the org.kde.konsole.desktop file in /usr/share/applications into konsole.desktop does the trick

cd /usr/share/applications/
sudo mv org.kde.konsole.desktop konsole.desktop

  • That's pretty hackish if you ask me and this is actually a bug IMHO. The executable is called konsole (and not org.kde.konsole) and I think problem comes from the fact that the application is not setting its application name when starting, see doc.qt.io/qt-5/qcoreapplication.html#applicationName-prop – Bigon Jan 10 '18 at 10:46
