Me (and according to different mailing-lists many people) was searching for this for a long time!
Why isnt this in winetricks or in an debian-package like wine-kde-integration ... ?

For kubuntu this is the last missing-part I think. Now win,gtk and kde apps show a uniqness I ve missed for a long time ... !!!

Please keep on your work!

By the way, in putty under wine, the "+"-buttons in the tree-view are only dark boxes ... This is the only thing which looks wrong on my first look on it. - Aug 27 2011

Check out QS-Client for this please :D

It supports not only vnc,rdp and nx
but also 13 Other protocols.

Configuration files can be generated for all protocols.

Windows-Version also available. All Client applications included or installable using a simple click :D

New Version will be soon out there :D
But the current one is quiet cool! (Especially on USB-Sticks) - Jan 20 2007

Sorry for delay ... Ill pack it at satureday.

Then you can test it an gimme feedback. As already mentioned, emuexec should work in every distribution, so if you wanna test, just install and edit emuexec.conf by hand.

If you want to skip this, just use commandline options which are used prior to emuexec.conf. - Dec 15 2006
Any news update for me ?

Did you try to install it with skipping this warning ?

After this, just try "joyhelper -i" to verify that emuhelper is running correctly and gimme the result. - Dec 13 2006
Was a pleasure to help :D

Now It's your task to gimme feedback and wishes for the next release :)

By the way .... proper ducumentation and online tutorial will be in the next version.

currently, man emuexec will be your friend.

Or just go to startmenu -> emulation -> Online -> Documentation for the half outdated documentation. - Dec 13 2006
It's uploaded again and I also tested the installation on my dapper workstation.

Everything should be correct. If errors occur, the package you have downloaded must be from your browser cache, so try to clear it. - Dec 13 2006
Okay ... then there must be a problem on sourceforge!

I'll upload the package again now

Please test it again in 1 hour and make clear that your browser-cache was cleared. - Dec 13 2006
Very interesting ....

I'm developing emuexec and kdeaddons-emulation on kubuntu. Its tested on edgy and dapper and has no problems like this at all.

What does dpkg -l "Package" show ?
Have you tried to download it again ?
Is emuexec installable using dpkg -i ? - Dec 13 2006
Hmmmmmmm ... very mysterous!

You can just forget this dependency cause is already in the emuexec-package. It gets required by emuhelper as a perl mod using a simple trick. I just dont wanted to look up all distributions for the corret pathes of perl mods, so for emuexec and all helper applications, /usr/share/emulation/lib/generic is the right path. Maybe in the next version I will include emuexec_joystick into joyhelper to solve this problem. For now, just add /usr/share/emulation/lib/generic to the search path of perl your perl mods. - Dec 13 2006
Okay ... Fedore-Packages for kdeaddons-emulation will be out this evening. For emuexec, just use the existing rpm file. - Dec 13 2006
... It's done - and better than I thought!

Just try and gimme your oppinion. - Dec 12 2006
Just to mention ....

The wine-exec-wrapper has been improved.

Now it decides to

a) Start win32-gui application
b) Start win32-console applications inside a terminal
c) Start DosBox for ms-dos executables

So finally ... no need to worry about the type of executables - this wrapper will get the most out of it.

Next version will also include virus detection.

Any further improvements/wishes ? - Sep 11 2006
many thanks - Its inside the new release! - Aug 24 2006
Very cool man !

Do you have any build-script to be included into the package ?

deb rpm and src scripts are already in /usr/share/emulation/devel

extract the source into your home-dir and execute :D - Aug 10 2006
No .... but many thanks to mention !

File-Plugins will be in the binary-part of kdeaddons-emulation 4.0

As well as

"pe thumbnail-supoport" :

Incombination with wine, kde will handle win32-exe files like a normal win32-app:

lnk and exe-files will show an icon ... Setup.exe files can be installed using a simple click, and "Place link on Desktop" as seen in every win32-installer will work like in windows.

In combination with a nice kcontrol-modul for kemuexec. Every aspect of emulation (e.g. Joystick configuration for all emulators in one gui, VM-Manager, VM-Creator, etc...) will be accssible in the simplest way ever seen and will put Linux&KDE to the #1 Emulation Desktop System.

Soooo .... Stay tuned and place further wishes here :D - Aug 02 2006
Ohh thanks!

Is there anything you miss ?

Or what can I improve ? - Jul 30 2006
Okay but now many wow-things where added... so feel free to get the new release!

EmuExec 1.0 Highlights:

Supports zip,rar,tar,gzip,bzip2,lha,arj,ace and 7zip decompression
Fullscreen emulation for emulators without fullscreen mode
Resolution switching using xrandr (when requested by driver, e.g. x64-vice)
Autoprobe driver for automatical selection of best emulator (Works also with compressed rom-images!!)
Automatic Screenshot functionality
Dynamic integration into any filemanager or htpc (freevo,mythtv)

But much more was done!


Info to RC-Testers:

1.) Don`t forget to execute

"emuhelper update"

after the upgrade!

2.) The config-dir has changed to ~/.local/share/emulation ! (Final location) - Jul 29 2006
So ....

Any comments
Any bugs
Any wishes ???

Just inform me ! I´ll do it! - Jul 20 2006
Hello everybody!

Feel free to test the new version of kdeaddons-emulation.

Until the final release the following will be added/updated:

1.) kqemu frontend will be synced with current commandline options of qemu.

2.) kqemu-img will be added and integrated into kqemu.

3.) Emuexec will get some minor additions and many new drivers

4.)I18N and documentation will be added/extended.

Oki ... If you need it ...

I´ll put it online later this day
(1-3 hrs).

rpm/deb generator script is included! - Sep 24 2004

Great work!

Apart from the fact that I can´t get this working on Opensuse 10 (sarge works), I'm somehow missing lnk-support.

Me wrote a wrapper script for lnk-files using wine-tools and kfmclient.

I´t would be very cool I´f you could include lnk-support to use lnk-files from windows users in a native way and see the corresponding Icon (Mime,Exec,DLL,UMC-Path, http-link, ftp-link, etc.).

You just need to get the last string out of the lnk-file to get the corresponding Win32-Path and convert it to the unix-path using "winepath [File]"

If its an exe or dll-file, just extract the icon.

If it´s something else, use mimemagic and get the corresponding kde-icon.

This would be excelent. - Jun 21 2006

Or a good metabar located in konqueror.

Ahem ... I missed info about distribution packages. And thats an interesting point:

You don´t need one! - qsclient is an selfextracting executable - It runs on every distrybution, even the nxclient which is installable using the setup menu. My Idea is to make it as porttable as the windows version. Then you can install it on e.g. usb-stick (Comming in final version) and use it where you are.

The only thing missing is a version packed with binaries for ppc-systems, but the setup routine substitues the main binaries anyway, if they are unavailable for you system. - Mar 30 2006
About the source:

The source for the windows clients is accessible using kde-apps download menu.

The code for the linux-client is now fully migrated to scripting and kommander-frontends. Fallback clients are available using k/X/cdialog.

All the patches for linux-software e.g. putty, plink and sources of the nx-scrambler and other tools which are included will be in the final qsclient package, wich will be released this weekend.

Next step is a native kde and curses client - They will debute in the 2.0 release. - Mar 30 2006
sorry for delay guys....

but next release candidate will debute on satureday.

It will be released on ,, and many more sites.

Docs will be out there too, also include in the client packages.

And more features are waiting for testeres like stunnel support and wake on lan client.

But stay tuned - good wine takes time! - Mar 07 2006
alread many bugs fixed in linux and windows version.

next version will be uploaded until tomorrow.

If you want to checkout the newest version everytime, just enter as Server and choose QSClient-Update in the taskbar-menu.

QSClient will try the download and otherwise get the most stable version from my homepage - So I´ll keep my premise : "One click and its done"

The next rc-version will also introduce "wake on lan", windows and linux etherwake clients are included, of course. - Mar 04 2006
... as I said. RC1 is available, so just download and try.

If you dont have an nxclient installed, just jo to the taskbar menu. Under setup there is a button to install nxclient automagically.

I guess everybody to take an eye on rdpexec nxexec and sshexec protocolls and test qsc-files using the wiondows and linux client - You will be impressed. Especially the pptp-client is very advanced now, just click on an pptp-qsc file and on linux and windows you´ll get a nice tray-icon as long as the vpn-connection is up.

IPSec and OpenVPN Connections will follow next. - Feb 28 2006
Today is the day :

QSClient 1.2 RC1 will be released!

This is the next step to establish an unltimate client application, which enables you to connect to over 14 Protocols with a simple click.

Main improvements are:

PPTP/PPPOE/ISDN/MODEM Setup using qsc-files - Available on Windows and linux (e.g. connect via pptp using a simple click, qsclient makes the whole setup for you on windows and Linux)

- Bugfixes
- New Protocols
- SSH-Key-Import
- RSA/DSA Key-support for SCP/SSH/NX
- Remote rc-service Management (+sudo)
- New Linux-Gui (kommander script)
- Improved linux script (lib-based)
- Rewritten Windows-Client (Tray-Menu)
- New Quick-Connect Dialog
- Impoved Portability (e.g. for USB-Sticks)
- 1st Dokumentation for win/lin
- Mount QSC-Files in Linux (ssh,ftp,etc..)

So stay tuned - If you still not know what todo with this software, wait for the docs - I guess you will be very impressed. - Feb 23 2006
Wait for the server :) , but It lacks of docs and i18n.

Just look at the web-interface to get a small overview : .

Have you ever installed freenx and a complete desktop-environment with a single click or command ?

Or what about a isdn dialin server?

using the qs-client or shell it will be just:

qslib install dialin
qslib set isdn-prefix xxxxx
qslib set isdn-msn xxxxx

... and every full quser can login using isdn :)

and ... its working already - based on debian sarge :) but portable to every linux distriburtion :D

stay tuned ;) - Sep 29 2005

And thats the problem, we need a public site to claim all the things which are missing in kde, or better said: We need a site to place some projects like yours and vote for it. Your tool is part of the missing link to konquer the Desktop-Market - "Normal users NEED tools like this"
The second part should be the evolution of kcontrol, to make it possible to configure everything - also server applications. So ... I hope kvpnc will be part of kcontrol - and my vote is guranteed :) - Oct 07 2005

As I said! And it is nice to see, that somebody agrees with me!

We need this configuration-tools for getting KDE/linux to a mature desktop system!.

Without frontends, no cmd-line-hateing-normal-windows-user will switch over to Linux!

I have a basic example how I crack "every" Windows-User to switch to Linux:

At first... I show him some emulators, players and tools... In Windows and Linux!!

Then I show him freevo, which is in generall a complete gui for manymany multimedia/system/pim tools.
And I can see it: They are shocked! Cause they see that windows is a noob system!!

95% of all users I showed the capabilities off freevo now have it at home!

The reason :

1.)One Frontend for everything
(even only useable only with a 10 button remote, or joystick)
2.)Linux in general as a backend.

After seeing the simplicity of this frontend, they start to go deeper and deeper.

This is the striking point of every

if this process of integrating basic tools/servers/etc..

At this point I have to point out my "Formula of the world"

1.)Every physical, biological, or universal world tends to a positive state, or tends to keep a positive state

2.)Only if the worlds respect other worlds, they will differentiate / live together.

So.... respect the other worlds

E.G. this application is very usefull and I had several people asking for it!

Make Frontends for all this great Linux/tools/servers/etc.. and include it into KDE! Without this.. Linux as a desktop-system won´t survive! This is the connection between user and System. Without this, we "CAN´T KONQUER WINDOWS and the people" using it, cause the most don´t like the commandline (In my eyes - all blockheads, but what Do you want ?

1.) Being the Mayor Desktop System


2.) Being a System where the cmd-line is a MUST have to configure most things ???

PS: Even an "init 0" is too much - The blockhead-average-user want to click on a button!
