Opensuse 11.0, Konsole - need to hit enter twice to see the result of commands

Hi all,

Have just installed opensuse 11.0, with KDE 4.0. In konsole, I sometimes have to hit the enter key twice to get something to happen.

For example: suppose at a prompt I type "whoami", then hit enter.
I then get a line feed, with a prompt as if I had never typed anything. Then I hit enter, and the result of the previous command appears.

What is going on here?

Hello VelocideX.

Have you tried changing shells? say from bash to sh or zsh? don't know if that would help, but just a thought...I've never had that problem...

Which keyboard layout did you choose? What I mean is, the <Enter> key might be unusually selected. Example: in the µsoft world typing <Enter> sends a <CR><LF> (i.e. carriage return / line feed which returns the cursor to the left one line lower). So it just could be the case that your <Enter> key sends only part of the expected signal. This is handled on your machine by the xorg.conf.
