    You haven't provided OS/release details, however the picture mentions a non-Ubuntu OS which is off-topic here (askubuntu.com/help/on-topic)

  • the OS is Ubuntu 19.10 Apr 27, 2020 at 8:19
  • Then why do you have "Deepin Screenshot" in image 1? And is Kate a snap? And what about Konsole?

Ubuntu 19.10, kate version 19.04.3-0ubuntu2.1 : add konsole

  1. Settings > Configure Kate > Plugins : tick "Terminal Tool Wiew" > Apply

  2. Tools : tick "Focus Terminal"

  • Suggest : Reset kate to default → Delete ~.config/{katerc, kateschemarc} and redo the "konsole settings". Apr 28, 2020 at 8:38
