I have tried replicating this bug on my system, but don't have a problem.
The bug reports that the '-c' argument is not recognised. However, when I try
it, the command works, with a new konsole window opening and the ssh command
working. I do get an error when I close the new child window, but that is
However, while testing this I found an odd behaviour. If I run the command
konsole -e bash -c "root ollie"
it works and I have a konsole session which is logged into Ollie. However, if
konsole -e sh -c "ssh -Y C -l root ollie"
it briefly opens the window but then immediately closes it, presumably because
the SSH has failed. The odd thing is that the two commands are effectively
the same thing
[gary@gary ~]$ cat bin/root
if [ "$1" == "" ]; then
ssh -Y -C -l root $host $*
