How to make aqemu directly show VM displays just like VMware Workstation and not use VNC in AntiX


Simply installing aqemu in Ubuntu derivative Peppermint you can then create and run VM's just like you would do with VMware Workstation. But not so in AntiX. Here you also need qemu-kvm and it still is not as good, you have to connect to the VM with a VNC viewer like this one:

xtightvncviewer 127.0.0.1:5900

How can AntiX be configured to NOT need any VNC viewer and show the VM's display itself?

Suspecting a package is missing because of an apparent policy of not getting recommended packages. In Devuan the recommended qemu-kvm is automatically marked to be received and presumably others too less obvious somewhere down the hierarchy, and the display is shown directly as a result - no vnc needed.

How do you pull all recommended packages with apt?
