What is this?

QTarot is a simple fortune telling app for Linux systems primarily. It works on Windows too. I'm pretty sure it works on Macs. Currently only has the Rider-Waite deck and the Elder Futhark, but more can be added. You can also change the background image for the current reading.


  • Make a GUI editor for deck definitions
  • Make a GUI editor for layouts
  • Make only the basename for an image in a deck definition matter
  • Actually fill out the Elder Futhark deck definition
  • More deck themes :|.
  • Streamline the GUI for making a new reading with another deck definition


  • Python 3
  • PyQt
  • lxml


Copy the files to /usr/share/qtarot if you plan to use the *.desktop file included. If not, feel free to leave it where you downloaded it or place it somewhere else.




Inspired by http://www.zyqote.com/Linux/pub/tarot/ and http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Education/Qtarot-18925.shtml.
Default deck and table also are from here.

Deck definitions
