Auto-select profile on login with Konsole?


I'm running Slackware-Current, KDE 5.21.5. I have several profiles set up in Konsole. Is there a way to auto-select a profile when logging in? Perhaps some escape sequence that can be sent to stdout? This is for when I ssh to a remote computer, not on the local computer running Slackware/KDE. The remote host is Linux, but no GUI desktop. Currently, I log into the remote computer, then go to Konsole > Settings > Switch profile. I'd love to skip this manual step.

I don't use konsole, but ...

konsole --help lists the following, among other options:

Code:
--profile <name>           Name of profile to use for new Konsole instance
--list-profiles            List the available profiles
--list-profile-properties  List all the profile properties names and their
                             type (for use with -p)
-p <property=value>        Change the value of a profile property.
So I suppose you could create launchers/shortcuts for each profile you want to start.

That would work - I'd either need to put the launchers in the panel, or create them in Favorites ...

In Settings -> Manage Profiles... you can set one profile as default. Or is that not what you meant?
