Summary: Can't edit Konsole Root Shell profile:

Editing the 'Root Shell' profile in Konsole-> Settings-> Manage Profiles does
not change the settings in the Konsole that is launched when selecting
Launcher-> System-> Terminal-> Terminal - Super User Mode (Classic menu).
Although a 'Root Shell.profile' with the changed configuration is added to
~.kde4/share/apps/konsole, it is not used. The application is still launched
with the default settings stored in
/usr/share/kde4/apps/konsole/Root_Shell.profile. This means that, regardless of
any user editing (whether as root or not), the default profile prevails, and
the user is effectively prevented from editing the profile from within the

To fix this, once a user has edited the 'Root Shell' profile, Konsole should be
programmed to use the profile stored in ~.kde4/share/apps/konsole/Root
Shell.profile, not the default profile in

This bug has been present since at least openSUSE 11.1.

Reproducible: Always

3. Change the profile in some way; eg, change the background color to Light
Yellow. Click OK, then OK.
4. Close the application.
5. Start the Konsole - Super User Konsole application.
Actual Results:
The application has the default Black on White background, as specified in

Expected Results:
The application should have the Black on Light Yellow background, as specified
in ~.kde4/share/apps/konsole/Root Shell.profile.
