If I open konsole it opens non-stop more windows of konsole and the gui hangs because of overload, I tried apt purge konsole && apt install konsole, I tried to restart but to no avail.

EDIT: @RuiFRibeiro

Here is the contents of ~youruser/.config/konsolerc

    Check in your ~/.bash_login or ~/.bashrc if konsole gets called in some way. – Mr Shunz Sep 4 '18 at 11:15

  • konsole depends on konsole-kpart, may it be the problem?? I got few problems with KDE usualy caused with mad user config files. I such case I create new user and 98% of problems dismis with login as new user. – schweik Sep 4 '18 at 12:12
  • @schweik it happened after first time loging in as new user and when i came back to my account konsole was firing like crazy – somethingSomething Sep 4 '18 at 12:52

As from your previous question, it seems konsole is calling itself.

I would view the contents of ~youruser/.config/konsolerc and delete it to fix the problem.
