4   Also, the name "QTransmission" is a placeholder.

13ABOUT QTRANSMISSION
14
15   QTransmission is a GUI for Transmission loosely based on the GTK+ client.
16
17   This is the only Transmission client that can act as its own self-contained
18   session (as the GTK+ and Mac clients do), and can also connect to a remote
19   session (as the web client and transmission-remote terminal client do).
20
21   Use Case 1: If you like to run BitTorrent for awhile from your desktop,
22   then the Mac, GTK+, and Qt clients are a good match.
23
24   Use Case 2: If you like to leave BitTorrent running nonstop on your
25   computer or router, and want to control it from your desktop or
26   from a remote site, then transmission-remote and the web and Qt clients
27   are a good match.
28
29   To use the Qt client as a remote, in the menu go to Edit > Change Session
30
31   The Qt client is also the most likely to wind up running on Windows,
32   though that's not a high priority at the moment...

34BUILDING
35
36   This currently is a little awkward.  We're working on it...
37
38   1. Prerequisites: Qt >= 4.x and its development packages
39   2. Build Transmission as normal
40   3. If you want to use the OS'es libevent, edit qtr.pro:
41      - LIBS += $${TRANSMISSION_TOP}/third-party/libevent/.libs/libevent.a
42      + LIBS += -levent
43   4. If you built Transmission without DHT, edit qtr.pro:
44      - LIBS += $${TRANSMISSION_TOP}/third-party/dht/libdht.a
45   5. In the qt/ directory, type "qmake-qt4 qtr.pro"
46   6. In the qt/ directory, type "make"
47   7. In the qt/ directory, as root, type "INSTALL_ROOT=/usr make install"
48      (Feel free to replace /usr with /usr/local or /opt or whatever)
