Hmm you mean starting a new konsole from command line. It that is what your asking then:

konsole -e program

some programs won't actually leave the window open. If you need the window to stay open:

konsole --noclose -e program

Hope that does it for you...

Ctrl+Alt+F7

& if you want to run KDE & GNome at the same time, you may want to upgrade your RAM.
