Qemu not visible

I installed qemu from Slackbuilds and Everything seemed to go smoothly. However, I am not seeing it in the list of applications where it should usually be.

Just launch it from an xterm or any other terminal. There is not a single "qemu" command but several whose names begin with qemu- so type qemu- then press [Tab] to know all the commands. Each has its own help, e.g. qemu-img --help.

I launch qemu using this script... you can likely take it and save some time:

export QEMU_AUDIO_DRV=sdl
qemu-kvm --enable-kvm -localtime -m 2G -sdl -display sdl -vga vmware -usbdevice tablet -smp 2 -net nic,model=virtio -net user -drive file=VirtualDrives/slackware64-14.1-ansaldo.img,cache=none,if=ide &

#-cdrom VirtualDrives/slackware64-14.1-install-dvd.iso
