I just broke a machine running Linux Mint with KDE 4. Thankfully I managed to back up /home/, so I have all my data. Now I've installed Kubuntu with KDE 5, and I'm trying to configure my Shell colorscheme to match my previous setup.

I usually created a variant on "Linux Colors" in "Shell Profiles". Where can I find this data?

You probably mean the KDE Konsole shell profiles and their color schemes.

These are usually saved in ~/.kde/share/apps/konsole/.

Custom shell profiles use the extension .profile, custom color schemes use .colorscheme.


In Kubuntu 21.04 i found in ~/.local/share/konsole/.profile
