Smile auto-configuring konsole


I would like to configure konsole's 'fixed number of lines' so that the terminal scrollback's history is increased, using a shell 1-liner, is this possible ?

I had thought that the following file was edited to store the setting, but it's not.

There must be some tool which allows easy configuration of your KDE environment.

Code:
~/.kde/share/config/konsolerc

Ok the command below changes the history size of the scrollback buffer, but the change is not saved into the default running konsole profile.

Therefore is the only method to save the changed konsole settings into a new profile, and to start that with "konsole --profile MyNewSession", as opposed to saving the settings into the default profile ?

I can't see an option in the menu to save a profile, nor can I find a command to do this.

The other method is to put these commands in a script somewhere and run those whenever konsole starts up. Which script would be best, is there a user KDE startup file to edit, as opposed to a bash_profile ?

Any recommendations ?

Code:
konsoleprofile HistorySize=5000

I've come to the conclusion based upon my experience above that konsole is'nt my favourite terminal.

What other terminals would you suggest as an alternative to konsole which actually allow easy modification, saves those perferences into the default profile, and loads that profile without any special parameters.

Does'nt necessarily have to be a console available via a repository either.
