Konsole: highlight the current tab

Problem
Holy shit, this problem has been bugging me for years… But at last I found a solution.

So, I use the terminal emulator Konsole, which is very nice, I love it, but the current tab is not highlighted enough. Thus, if you have several tabs opened, it’s always difficult to figure out which is the current one.

konsole_off

Solution

It turns out that Konsole can be customized via a CSS stylesheet file. Here is an example (konsole.css) that you should save somewhere:

QTabBar::tab:selected {
    background: lightgreen;
    color: black;
    font: bold;
}

Then, in Konsole, go to Settings -> Configure Konsole… -> TabBar, and there specify this CSS file:

konsole_settings

And here is the result:

konsole_on
