I've modified askubuntu.com/questions/1135119/… and voted to re-open because I can provide an answer. So could others please also vote to re-open?

@Rinzwind Ranger can do it. I checked with konsole in Kubuntu 19.04, and with gnome-terminal and lxterminal in Kubuntu 18.04. Numbering isn't on by default but one can switch on the fly with :set line_numbers absolute or :set line_numbers relative and turn numbering off with :set line_numbers false. Or one can edit ~/.config/rc.conf.
