[R] Kate terminal window

Dear R-users,

I've recently switched to Ubuntu and I've decided to use Kate to edit my 
R code. I really like how Kate allows one to simply pipe their code to 
the terminal. However, I would find it even better if I could actually 
get the Kate console to display error messages (or any console outputs 
in fact) in red and my input in a different color. The instance of xterm 
that Ubuntu seems to run by default supports color coding. Can the Kate 
console be set up to do just the same?

Although this is clearly an issue related to Kate, I was thinking that 
some people on this list might also use Kate in conjunction with R and 
might have already inquired about this.

I thank you very much for your help.
