QTermWidget is an opensource project based on KDE4 Konsole application. The main goal of this project is to provide unicode-enabled, embeddable QT4 widget for using as a built-in console (or terminal emulation widget).

Of course I`m aware about embedding abilities of original Konsole, but once I had Qt without KDE, and it was a serious problem. I decided not to rely on a chance. I could not find any interesting related project, so I had to write it.

The original Konsole`s code was rewritten entirely with QT4 only; also I have to include in the project some parts of code from kde core library. All code dealing with user interface parts and session management was removed (maybe later I bring it back somehow), and the result is quite useful, I suppose.

This library was compiled and tested on three linux systems, based on 2.4.32, 2.6.20, 2.6.23 kernels, x86 and amd64. Ther is also a sample application provided for quick start.

The best way to get the code is to use CVS via the command:
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@qtermwidget.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/qtermwidget co -P qtermwidget

Project history

Some bugfixes

Added cmake support

Some parts of sources were refactored. Next alpha version issued. Now it`s 0.1 (was 0.0.1)

Added optional scrollbar

Some artefacts were removed, some added...
Also added support for color schemes, and 3 color schemes provided (classical - white on black, green on black, black on light yellow). Is it enough or not?

Added file release as an archive with source code. But preferrable way is still getting code from CVS, cause file release can be outdated.

Initial CVS import - first version comes with number 0.0.1
