I've an idea about creating an open source project based on custom terminal emulator development for GNU/Linux. I googled around but didn't find any source code for the native GNU/Linux terminal emulator. Can anyone guide me about where to start and where can I find the source code for native terminal.

Source code for Gnome-Terminal, i.e the Terminal emulator that we use in Ubuntu is here
While here is the code for same Gnome-Terminal in Gnome's git repository.
There may be differences between those two.
