I want to clear all the history that I can scroll to, so that I start with a terminal without anything in it exempt the prompt. clear only creates a clear screen, but does not delete the scroll history.



Works for normal terminal and also the kate plugin :)

Oops I had originally put Ctrl-Alt... too late at night it seems

  • <kbd>Ctrl</kbd>-<kbd>l</kbf> works too (for me) – Nikos Alexandris May 14 '13 at 10:00
  • well, Ctrl+l (that is a lower case "L") – Nikos Alexandris May 14 '13 at 10:02
  • maybe I misread the question -- anyhow, Ctrl+Shift+x does not work for me from within Kate – Nikos Alexandris May 14 '13 at 10:04
