  • Description

    CuteCom is a graphical serial terminal, like minicom (or Hyperterminal on Windows, It is aimed mainly at hardware developers or other people who need a terminal to talk to their devices.

    It is written using the Qt library by Trolltech. Cutecom doesn’t use the autotools (autoconf, automake, libtool, etc.) Instead “configure” is simply a wrapper script which calls qmake. To uninstall cutecom simply delete the file “cutecom” and the file “cutecom.desktop” and you’re done. The config file is ~/.qt/cutecomrc.
