VICE Manual

3 Invoking the emulators

The names of the available emulators are:
x64, the C64 emulator
x64dtv, the C64DTV emulator
x128, the C128 emulator
xvic, the VIC20 emulator
xpet, the PET emulator
xplus4, the PLUS4 emulator
xcbm2, the CBM-II emulator

You can run each of them by simply typing the name from a shell. If you want to run them from another application (e.g., a window manager or some other sort of program launcher) you should always run them from a terminal window such as xterm or rxvt since VICE provides a lot of debugging information that is sent to the terminal and has built-in monitor that also appears there. For example, you could do
xterm -e x64
