In Kde the renameSession will set the Konsole name. Add this to your vimrc file to name the session after the edited file.

autocmd BufReadPost * :silent !dcop $KONSOLE_DCOP_SESSION renameSession %

This one set the title to the current working dirctory when you leave vim.

autocmd VimLeavePre * :silent !dcop $KONSOLE_DCOP_SESSION renameSession $PWD

CommentsEdit

Dan thanks for the vim help, however I do not use konsole. So I modified my .tcshrc with this:

# This makes it possible to make vim automagically set the date and time
# in the title bar.
#
alias vimdate '/bin/date "+%A, %B %e, %Y Time: %H:%M"'
setenv mydate `vimdate`
alias vi 'setenv mydate `vimdate` ; /usr/bin/vim \!* ; cd `pwd`'

then I read the how to for setting or unsetting the title in vim, so I set my .vimrc with this:

:auto BufEnter * let &titlestring = $USER . " on " . hostname() . " :
 \ Viming: " . expand("%:p") . " Date: " . $mydate
:set title titlestring=%<%F%=%l/%L-%P titlelen=70

This with the .tcshrc mod will give you your name on machine Viming : filename : date and time.


I might not always use kde, so I have my xterm do my title work for me. My .tcshrc for my xterms, looks like this:

### ---------------------------------------------------------------
# This is where cd is overloaded and it adjusts the prompt.
#
# cds: change directory hybrid queueish stack
set cds = ( $HOME )
#
alias cd 'if ( ${#cds} >= 4 ) shift cds;\\
 chdir \!*;\\
 setprompt;\\
 set cds = ( $cds $cwd );\\
 echo $cds'
#
alias lastdir 'if ( ${#cds} <= 1 ) set cds = ( $cds $cwd );\\
 @ idx = ${#cds} - 1;\\
 chdir $cds[$idx];\\
 setprompt;\\
 set cds = ( $cds[1-$idx] );\\
 echo $cds;\\
 unset idx'
#
setprompt
#
### ---------------------------------------------------------------
#
#
### ---------------------------------------------------------------
# This is where the title bar of the xterm is set.
#
alias date '/bin/date "+%A, %B %e, %Y Time: %H:%M:%S"'
#
if ($?tcsh) then
# set prompt="$host{`whoami`}%\!: "
#
 if ($?term) then
 alias cwdcmd 'echo -n "^[]2;" "$USER on $host : $cwd `date`^G"'
 cwdcmd
 endif
#else # regular csh
# set prompt="$hostnm{`whoami`}\!: "
# if ($term == xterm) echo -n "^[]0;$hostnm^G"
endif
#
### ---------------------------------------------------------------

Note: In the alias cwdcmd line, after the `echo -n "^[]2;" the ^[ is a control h, I think.

This is why I aliases vi to 'setenv mydate `vimdate` ; /usr/bin/vim \!* ; cd `pwd` When I do a cd `pwd` it automatically changes my title bar to:

me on machine : $PWD day, date, Time: time.

This works with xterm, aterm, wterm, kterm, rxvt, and konsole. Please feel free to email me if you would like me to send you a copy.

Also I run Debian, so there for everything is generic; so I had to figure out how to modify/customize everything with dot files; this way I learn more by doing it myself.
