Screenshot showing the new toolbar

Description of problem:
After upgrading to the 21.04 version of konsole5 there is now a strange menu bar that cannot be hidden. The new menubar does not seem to be fully functional as pressing the "new tab" button does not seem to do anything.

If this is an intended change I must say I am not happy with it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Last known good version: konsole5-20.12.1-1.fc34

First bad version: konsole5-21.04.1-2.fc34.x86_64 (and the issue remains with konsole5-21.04.1-3.fc34)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade from konsole5 20.12 to 21.04
2. Relaunch konsole

Actual results:
There is now a menu/tool bar on all console windows.

Expected results:
No menu bar.

Additional info:
I have attached screenshots of before and after upgrading konsole5.

The toolbars appear to be a new feature with 21.04.

The New Tab toolbar works fine on my system.  

Being able to hide them would be a good feature though.  This post on the KDE forum ( seems to indicate that there's an option under Settings to show/hide the toolbar, but I don't see it.  Right-clicking on the toolbars (new tab and copy/paste/find are two separate toolbars) lets me lock/unlock the tool bars so that they can be undocked or moved around, but also no option for hiding them.

Comment 3 Eugene Mah 2021-06-04 23:55:49 UTC

Right click on the menu bar (File/Edit/...) and uncheck Main Toolbar and Session Toolbar to make them go away.

Comment 4 Kostya Vasilyev 2021-06-07 06:49:34 UTC
I also have SuSE Tumbleweed installed, which has the same exact Konsole version.

In SuSE, Konsole has menu items under Settings to turn the toolbars on and off, exactly as mentioned in comment #2.

Perhaps that's a build time option? If it is, can it be enabled for Fedora, so that we get menu items under Settings to turn the toolbars on and off, please?

Comment 5 Jerry Kiely 2021-06-08 01:18:51 UTC
I have the same issue. 

For me the toolbar first appeared in version 21.04.1-2.fc34 - you could hide / disable it in the settings menu by navigating to 'Settings -> Toolbars Shown' and un-checking both main and session toolbars (there was also a 'Configure Toolbars...' entry in the settings menu).

After upgrading to version 21.04.1-3.fc34 the previously hidden toolbar has returned, and I can see no way to disable / hide the toolbar - there is no longer anything toolbar related in the settings menu at all. 


Comment 6 Kostya Vasilyev 2021-06-08 06:09:33 UTC
One more thing that's wrong:

Hiding the toolbars (using right click on the menu bar, for now) does not save.

Next time you run Konsole or even create a new tab - the toolbars are present again.

* Wed Jun 02 2021 Rex Dieter <rdieter> - 21.04.1-3
- revert upstream commit causing sizing regresssion (kde#437791)

This was done to workaround another bug #1957858

So looks like we get to fix only one of those issues. :-/ 

At least until upstream fixes that other issue properly (instead of our reverting the commit that introduced it):

Comment 8 Rex Dieter 2021-06-29 20:37:03 UTC
This should be resolved with latest updates, prior workaround was removed.

Comment 9 Bill Helfinstine 2021-07-30 05:13:22 UTC
Bug appears to be back in konsole5-21.04.2-3.fc34.x86_64

Comment 10 Kostya Vasilyev 2021-07-30 06:08:39 UTC
Same for me, the bug is back in konsole5-21.04.2-3.fc34.x86_64

Comment 11 Vitaly 2021-07-30 12:14:11 UTC
Reopening. Regression is back in konsole5-21.04.2-3.fc34.x86_64.

There is no way to hide this ugly toolbar.

Comment 13 Vitaly 2021-07-30 12:26:58 UTC
Regression introduced by this commit:

I think it should be reverted.

Comment 14 Rex Dieter 2021-08-02 20:43:09 UTC
Folks affected, mind trying out this scratch build of latest upstream konsole beta release, with merge request:

> Folks affected, mind trying out this scratch build of latest upstream

Nice.  That fixed it.  Thanks.

Comment 17 Thomas Johnson 2021-08-03 07:34:34 UTC
Can also confirm as fixed. Toolbars are hidden by default, and can be individually toggled with Menu > Settings > Toolbars Shown > {Main Toolbar, Session Toolbar}.


Comment 18 Bill Helfinstine 2021-08-05 05:36:09 UTC
I can confirm that the toolbars can be toggled off and they remain off when logging out and back in.

Comment 19 Fedora Update System 2021-08-19 16:12:10 UTC
FEDORA-2021-00986f6207 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 34.

Comment 20 Kostya Vasilyev 2021-08-19 17:43:16 UTC
The bodhi builds are from KDE 21.08 - is the whole thing (KDE) coming to Fedora 34, not just Konsole?
