Qemu Launcher provides a graphical front-end to all basic, and many advanced QEMU computer emulator options. It allows you to create, save, and run multiple virtual machine configurations, create and convert disk images.

Qemu Launcher utilizes the full system emulation mode of QEMU that allows you to run unmodified operating system on virtual hardware.

Qemu Launcher also supports launching virtual machines from the command line, by specifying the configuration name:

qemu-launcher 'Configuration name'

Note that you still need a graphical environment to do this, unless the virtual machine is set to start in non-graphics mode.

Note also that this project is completely unrelated to the similarly named qemulauncher project registered on SourceForge in 2009. That one is Windows oriented and written in VB.NET, whilst this one is Perl based and targets Linux, OSX and Windows.

As you may have noticed, things are not going very smoothly at all. There are unfixed bugs, and I have to apologize to all the people who sent me patches and translations. I did not have time to integrate them into the application, and will probably not have time to do it for another month or two.

If there is something better than email, then it must be a mailing list. And guess what, we now have one! Feel free to post questions, ideas, suggestions, rants, praises, pizza, money... Everyone is invited.
