    why startx everytime I want to load VICE

    Hi Guys

    Im very new to the whole graphical side of Linux.

    I'm running Ubuntu 12.10. I am trying to run VICE on it but for some reason I need to type startx x86 (x86 is the VICE binary) to start the app. Why is this?

    I want to pass parameters to x86 but I can't do that when I proceed x86 with startx, as the parameters are read by startx.

    surely there is a better way to do this?

    what is VICE? is that commodore emulator? how did you install it?

    startx start's the graphics environment. e.g. if you are in terminal (CLI mode) you would start the grpahics environment (if you had one) with command startx.
