Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Qterminal is an open-source, lightweight, terminal emulator developed in Qt, specially created for the LXQt desktop environment.
Unlike other terminal emulators available as default on Linux systems, Qterminal has support for both horizontal and vertical split, a feature for collapsing a subterminal, zoom in, zoom out and copy paste functions.
Also, the users can hide the window borders, set the scrollbar layout on the left or on the right and move the tab layout on the bottom, top, left or right.
The latest version available is Qterminal 0.6, which has been released a while ago.
In this article I will show you how to install Qterminal 0.6 on Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Deepin 2014, Peppermint Five, LXLE 14.04, Linux Lite 2 and other Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.10 and Ubuntu 14.04 derivative systems.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Qterminal 0.6 on Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04 and derivative systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the qterminal package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lubuntu-dev/lubuntu-daily
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install qterminal
Optional, to remove qterminal, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove qterminal
