I need more information:

  1. which program did you try to run?
  2. did you try run command from terminal?

    If this bug is from the menu i can apply a patch and release it asap but i need more information

Konsole is installed in os in able to use konsole using shortcut and by directly clicking on it from the menu. Im also able to launch programs using konsole like if i want to launch nmap i can do so by typing nmap when i have opened console but if i try to launch the same program from the menu entry, it doesn’t wnd show the above error “unable to find konsole” it happens with all the menu entries that rely on konsole
I’m attaching a video link(Gdrive)

I stumbled upon here

Sorry that problem is from KDE side and it is confirmed by the KDE bug tracker. The only thing we can do is wait for their patch.

Well then got to wait untill they push new update thanks for help

I just noticed that the konsole problem is just for konsole but it effects other terminals also i have multiple terminals installed on my parrot installation. I thought, lets change the default one and then 1st i tried hyper it said hyper not found then i tried mate terminal again the same error byobu, retro term also. Is this error somewhere in menu entries itself?

when will the problem be solved? KDE already fixed the problem

Exactly what I’m waiting for too

when i look at the properties of the shortcuts for the metasploit framework, they are set to menuexec whatever_msf. when i run the menuexec script without arguments, there seem to be options for -g groups -u user. might these effect menuexec’s ability to attach to konsole? Also after changing my default term emulator from konsole to xterm then back to konsole, i got “found in path but no permissions” error.(which is weird cuz konsole is set rwxr x rx ) i know KDE is an unwieldy behemoth but this has me a bit stumped… and if i want msf i pop a shell and THEN get to work, rather than point and click, so it doesn’t hurt me a bit, but i would like everybody to be happy with the distro. i will load 4.10 in a virtul machine and mess with different menuexec options along with msfpc and see what i get…

No. This is a bug of KDE which find binary from PATH. There is 1 member tried changing Terminal from konsole to terminator and it didn’t work too.

Why is the administration not responding when there will be an update ??? when?? or do we not wait for it ??

This issue will be fixed when kde push kde framework version 5.71.0 to stable release currently it is in unstable so got to wait for some time.


I wonder when will debian update the kde framework package from 5.70 to the latest one. Come on debian it’s more than a month.
