KDE Kate editor and other KDE applications - Remove debug text in terminal

KDE Kate editor outputs debug information in the terminal.

To remove this is not very easy.

Debug configuration is stored in:
$HOME/.kde/share/config/kdebugrc

And this file is composed by lines like this:

[kded]
InfoOutput=4

The text between [ and ] may also be a number.
Number 2 seems to be enabled and number 4 seems to be disabled.

Here is some lines that matched Kate:

[13000]
InfoOutput=4

[13001]
InfoOutput=4

[13002]
InfoOutput=4

[13010]
InfoOutput=4

[13020]
InfoOutput=4

[13025]
InfoOutput=4

[13030]
InfoOutput=4

[13033]
InfoOutput=4

[13035]
InfoOutput=4

[13040]
InfoOutput=4

[13050]
InfoOutput=4

[13051]
InfoOutput=4

[13060]
InfoOutput=4

[13070]
InfoOutput=4

This list may not be complete and may miss something that needs to be disabled.

There is an application to manage debug settings, named kdebugdialog. This application is however inside the 221 MB big package named kde-runtime. So, this needs to be installed to run the dialog:

apt-get install kde-runtime
kdebugdialog
