QTermWidget

Overview

A terminal emulator widget for Qt 5.

QTermWidget is an open-source project originally based on the KDE4 Konsole application, but it took its own direction later on. The main goal of this project is to provide a unicode-enabled, embeddable Qt widget for using as a built-in console (or terminal emulation widget).

It is compatible with BSD, Linux and OS X.

Code configuration is handled by CMake. CMake variable CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX will normally have to be set to /usr, depending on the way library paths are dealt with on 64bit systems variables like CMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR may have to be set as well.

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