Is it possible to start the terminal (qterminal) without window borders, without using alt + B? I am using Debian + LXQT Excuse me, I am Colombian, thank you very much
you think about a terminal window without WM decorations - if so, good idea, there should be a option for @tsujan, what do you think?
This is a screenshot of my QTerminal:
As you see, there’s no border, except for a title bar.
Making a window borderless inside its code is possible but not a good idea, unless the program is special. The window manager should manage borders.
By “special program”, I mean something like lxqt-leave. A terminal isn’t special in that sense.
However, that’s my opinion, not an LXQt decision. And it isn’t an important opinion to me either
@tsujan - maybe it is only about the used words - my point is the decoration aka;
i hope, i’m right - and yes i would like a configuration option to have the terminal without decorations - if we offer to abandon decorations, why not offer a default option for?
You mean an option for remembering it?
Let me confess: I’ve removed that option for my personal use. If Qterminal doesn’t remember it, there is a bug.
I’ll look into it and, if that’s the case, will open an issue and make a PR.
It turned out to be a good point.
Someone added this comment to the code: https://github.com/lxqt/qterminal/blob/dc125b8dbd99ee9ad4af90463034d309282bd780/src/mainwindow.cpp#L399
Whether it was an old Qt bug or was done incorrectly, I should still investigate but the problem is “known”.
It works here but please test.
Answered in the Pr - and run into a fault, wrong sorting of my emails
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:36 (find_package):
By not providing "FindQTermWidget5.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this project
has asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by
"QTermWidget5", but CMake did not find one.
Could not find a package configuration file provided by "QTermWidget5"
(requested version 0.14.1) with any of the following names:
Add the installation prefix of "QTermWidget5" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set
"QTermWidget5_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files. If
"QTermWidget5" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it
has been installed.
– Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
See also "/home/cad/Descargas/ter/qterminal/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log".
Latest git qtermwidget should be compiled and installed before qterminal.
If you use Debian, do it in Debian’s way, by making deb packages. If you don’t know how, I recommend you wait for the fix to be merged and the new version to be built for Debian.
glad to hear it works for you - maybe i should suggest you https://salsa.debian.org - especially the experimental snapshots - we are allways in search for good testers and enthusiasts
Edit: No joke, i run latest git for six years now - the experimantal snapshots
I’ll be taking a look
@pikebucaro - please please . if you need help, fricking call me. I know that i’m not the best and pleasent dev in the world -but i like LXQt, and I’m primus inter paris. Just get a “rock stable” sid or far better: get the experimental snapshots - if there are any faults, just write a bug report - and this report hasn’t to be nice, just direct. WE can handle it - every thing that makes LXQt better is hereby welcome, no matters if it hurts us
ok ok hahaha, I’m also a developer, but I’m still on the dark side, exactly how can I help?
