"The general puropse of this package is the full desktop integration of all available emulators and virual machines"

I hope you mean Virtual machines. because i don't like virual machines ;)

I modified it to:

#!/bin/sh
FILE="$1"
FILENAME="`basename \"$FILE\"`"
WORKDIR="`dirname \"$FILE\"`"
#Go to workdir
cd "$WORKDIR"
#Execute
wine "./$FILENAME"

to let it work even when directory name
contains spaces.

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 ?

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

Has your project any relationship with kemul.sf.net?

If not, doesn't matter, your project is very promising.

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

well first of all thanks for your work it really looks great! i wanted to ask what the difference between the kde and the i386 packages are...
and it would be really great to see a "all emulators in one" package since there are so many different emus for the platforms that i wont know which you program uses...
thanks alot
