Problem with: konsole --bg <color>

Hi,

'konsole --help-qt' lists among other things:
...
--bg, --background Legt die standardmðà ige Hintergrundfarbe fest sowie eine Anwendungspalette (helle und dunkle Tne werden berechnet).
--fg, --foreground Legt die standardmðà ige Vordergrundfarbe fest.
...

But --bg and --fg do not work. Why don't these options work? What must I do to set colors with these options?

Re: Problem with: konsole --bg <color>

I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a new thread as it's the same as your previous thread where we were all having fun with schemas but I suppose the reason the --bg doesn't work is because reagrdless of the "qt" options, konsole just sets everything according to it's current default schema.
Never preceed any demonstration with anything more predictive than "watch this"

Mark,

thank you. I wanted to be sure that -bg, -fg really are fake options. You're work-around using a wrapper script works good.
