## Overview
4

5
QTerminal is a lightweight Qt terminal emulator based on [QTermWidget](https://github.com/lxqt/qtermwidget).
6

7
It is maintained by the LXQt project but can be used independently from this desktop environment. The only bonds are [lxqt-build-tools](https://github.com/lxqt/lxqt-build-tools) representing a build dependency and the localization files which were outsourced to LXQt repository [lxqt-l10n](https://github.com/lxqt/lxqt-l10n).

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