debugging in kdevelop 4


I've just upgraded to Kubuntu 10.04, and thus, now to kdevelop 4.

I've set up a custom makefile project based on an existing code base, and had success in compiling the project, and generally like the new editor and interface of kdevelop 4, however, I have one question I hope someone can help me with.

In kdevelop 3 it was possible to make the debugger open a seperate terminal window for the being-debugged-application. I can not find a similar option in kdevelop 4, and I somewhat need this option. Does someone know how to enable it, if it can be enabled?

In the Project Options dialog, go to the Debugger tab and check Enable separate terminal for application IO
This was from the FAQ page for kdevelop

yes indeed, it is. And I have come across that, and further come to the conclusion that it only applies to Kdevelop 3, because there's no longer a Project Options menu, the debugger options are in a different place, and they do not seem to have the "Enable seperate terminal for application IO" option there, where I would expect it. That's why I need to ask the question!

I'm facing the same problem. Browsing around, I've come across mention of an "Enable separate terminal for application IO" option within the "Run->Launch Configurations" menu for Kdev 4, butI can't find any such option on my system (Kdevelop 4.0.0 on Kubuntu 10.04). In fact, there aren't any options available under the "global" entry, which surprises me a little (can't I set some global options, like the path to GDB, rather than having specifify it each time?).

I see that kdevelop is currently at version 4.0.2 so maybe this option exists in the newer version (clutching at straws)?

I am hoping it will be address soon, if not right now. I just started evaluating KDevelop 4.0.2 and quickly bumped into this roadblock. Our applications are mostly console apps, so with this limitation, I won't be able to use KDevelop at all. I'm currently using kdbg, which works fine as debugger, but an IDE like KDevelop would be nice...
