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.
The latest version of Qterminal is available via some third party PPA, so installing the software on Ubuntu should not be to difficult.
All you need to do is add the PPA to your system, update the local repository index and install the qterminal package:
$ 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
The installation instructions should work on Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17.x, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya and other Ubuntu derivative systems.
