I installed Kate in Ubuntu. But it is not showing Terminal in the application.

I read that I should install Konsole, as Kate is a KDE based application. I installed Konsole and ran Kate again but I didn't get the terminal. I even can't see Terminal option under view, tools view and tools.

What should I do to get Terminal in Kate in GNOME?

  • I wouldn't think this would be the case, but... maybe try complete uninstall of Kate, then re-install now that Konsole is there – Charles Boling Jul 21 '15 at 16:57

    You didn't say what Ubuntu version you were running, but I just tried the latest (15.04) Kubuntu LiveCD and found that, unlike previous versions where I don't think you could even disable the terminal plugin, in this one it's not enabled by default. I went into Settings - Configure Kate - Plugins and enabled "Terminal tool view"; then it showed up. – Charles Boling Jul 21 '15 at 18:44
  • For ubuntu 16.04 users, you need to do both: install konsole alongside kate (it doesn't come as dependance) and enable the plugin in kate configuration. – Antonello Sep 19 '16 at 7:22

Most probably you have it installed correctly but by default kate will not show it, you need to configure it:

Go to Kate ⇒ Configure ⇒ Application ⇒ Plugins and check the Terminal tool view checkbox. This will immediately change your kate window by showing the konsole , setup in the working directory in which kate was launched.
