It's nothing to do with desktop environment in use, so it's alright for
the moment since you won't melt your system with a plasma ray.... ;)

The default shell is /bin/bash, doesn't matter witch terminal is used,
xterm, gnome-terminal, konsole etc and the end of the terminal session
it will write out to the ~/.bash_history.....

Unfortunately if a user runs history -c it's all gone for that

Or are you wanting the user to run something when requested?

FWIW, I would suggest a tool like sysdig may be easier for the admin to
use (Available via package hub, maybe not ready for SLE 15)?

Use the command;
sysdig -c spy_users
