QTerminal

Overview

QTerminal is a lightweight Qt terminal emulator based on QTermWidget.

It is maintained by the LXQt project but can be used independently from this desktop environment. The only bonds are lxqt-build-tools representing a build dependency and the localization files which were outsourced to LXQt repository lxqt-l10n.

This project is licensed under the terms of the GPLv2 or any later version. See the LICENSE file for the full text of the license.

Installation

Compiling sources

Dependencies are qtx11extras ≥ 5.2 and QTermWidget. In order to build CMake ≥ 3.0.2 and lxqt-build-tools are needed as well as optionally Git to pull latest VCS checkouts. The localization files were outsourced to repository lxqt-l10n so the corresponding dependencies are needed, too. Please refer to this repository's README.md for further information.

Code configuration is handled by CMake. Building out of source is required. CMake variable CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX will normally have to be set to /usr.

To build run make, to install make install which accepts variable DESTDIR as usual.

Binary packages

QTerminal is provided by all major Linux distributions like Arch Linux, Debian (as of Debian stretch), Fedora and openSUSE. Just use the distributions' package managers to search for string qterminal.
