When using Kate Text Editor, I try to open the built-in Terminal, but all I see is a gray window under my code. How do I use this built-in terminal?

Asked by Guille

The Kate Text Editor has a built-in terminal, which you can launch from the editor's window. This terminal appears as a button on the lower left corner of the window. Supposedly when you click on that button you should see a terminal on the Kate window. Nevertheless, when I click on this button, all I see is a gray window with nothing on it. i would like to get assistance on how to use the built-in terminal of the Kate Text Editor

The terminal only works if you have kde's terminal called "konsole". Install it using "sudo apt-get install konsole"
