CuteCom is a graphical serial terminal, like minicom. It works under Linux, FreeBSD and Mac OS X.
It is aimed mainly at hardware developers or other people who need a terminal to talk to their devices. It is free software and distributed under the GNU General Public License Version 2, which can find in the file COPYING.
Cutecom was initially inspired by Bray++ for Windows.
Version 0.20.0 requires Qt 4.1.

finally, logging feature added, great!
I remember having requested this, even proposed to do it myself :)
I must admit, I was just too lazy :-(
and, of course, not sure if I would have succeeded with my limited qt-programming skills.
so, a big thanks to you, Alex!

 Can't open ttyUSB0

Hi, there:

I use USB to RS232 converter. I can use minicom to open /dev/ttyUSB0, but I can't do it in cutecom.

I also have such a USB to RS232 adapters and /dev/ttyUSB0 works fine for me. Are you sure *all* settings are the same?

Excellent application Neundorf. I'll be using this app on a daily basis. Thank you!

In the recent past, I have two instances of cutecom running at the same time, monitoring two different embedded devices. Both configured with two different baud rates. Having (named) sessions with the settings stored, would help quite a lot.
I'd might even try have a go on this but moving the sources to github or something similar would make providing a pull request much smoother.
Any chance?
Alternativly: Any recommendation for a similar software?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
