When you launch a program via QProcess, it maps the stdin/stdout/stderr to QT stream objects you can read and write to/from. That's fairly straight forward, and I think you understand that.

Now, when you launch a terminal via QProcess, the stdin/stdout/stderr of the terminal get mapped as expected. But what the terminal does is create a pseudo tty (e.g. /dev/pts/n) and uses that for the stdin/stdout/stderr for the process it's running, and displays the results in its window.

visually, something like:
QProcess <=stdin/out=> xterm
                         + pty <=stdin/out=> /bin/ls
In general, terminal emulators do not forward child program's I/O to its own stdin/out. There might be ways to do that, you'd have to check the manual pages for whatever terminal emulator to see if that's possible.

So this is exactly what happens if you say xterm -e /bin/ps from the command line. In this case, xterm launches, it displays the output of /bin/ps to its screen, and then closes. In the original command line window, nothing gets printed - unless there's output from xterm itself.

Hopefully that explains things a bit for you, and does not add to your confusion.
