AQEMU is a user-friendly GUI front-end to the QEMU and KVM emulators. The AQEMU front-end is written using the Qt5 framework.


USE flags

USE flags for app-emulation/aqemu Graphical interface for QEMU and KVM emulators, using Qt5

vnc Enable VNC (remote desktop viewer) support


Install aqemu:

root #emerge --ask app-emulation/aqemu


Configuration for AQEMU is a breeze. Simply follow the setup wizard to create a virtual hard drive, then set up a virtual machine.

Enabling VM graphical output

In version 0.8.2-r2 or lower, there is no setting to enable the graphical output from the virtual machines. To have the machine display output to a GTK window an additional option currently not "supported" in AQEMU is needed. Presuming a virtual machine has already been created, follow these instructions:

  1. Start AQEMU.
  2. Click the Advanced tab.
  3. Under Additional QEME/KVM Arguments enter -display gtk in the textbox then click Apply.
  4. Start the virtual machine. Output should be displayed in a GTK window.
