Bug Description

Binary package hint: dolphin

if you install the gnome-based ("regular") ubuntu, you'll be able to "apt-get install dolphin" without pulling in the "konsole" package. dolphin works as normal, but the when you press F4 to bring up the terminal, no terminal is there.

"apt-get install konsole" fixes the problem, and you don't even have to restart a running dolphin instance.

to fix this, add "konsole" as a dependency of the "dolphin" package. thanks.

  * Dolphin doesn't recommend kfind anymore (it is not used for search
    these days, but nepomuk is)
  * Dolphin suggests konsole (LP: #593324)
    - Used in the Tools menu. This is suggests and not kompare because:
      a user might already have a terminal app making konsole and the
      konsole kpart not particularly necessary and installing them by default
      via recommends might be considered bad behavior. At the same time
      user friendly package mangers such as the Muon Software Center offer
      the installation of suggests along with the application in a very
      accessible manner, making it easy for users to install if they wish to.
