[Solved] using qemu from terminal, 'qemu' can be found in the following packages?


On my Linux mint 17 distro I am trying to create a virtual machine with qemu from terminal but keep getting "The program 'qemu' can be found in the following packages" I tryed installing qemu-system-x86 with apt-get however it says thats already installed. I trying to follow instuctions found on wikibooks for qemu. Here is what my terminal session looks like:

Code:
bb@yte ~/isos $ qemu-system-x86 -m 1024 -hda black_xp.img -cdrom black_xp.iso -boot d
qemu-system-x86: command not found
bb@yte ~/isos $ qemu
The program 'qemu' can be found in the following packages:
 * qemu-system-arm
 * qemu-system-mips
 * qemu-system-misc
 * qemu-system-ppc
 * qemu-system-sparc
 * qemu-system-x86
Try: sudo apt-get install <selected package>
bb@yte ~/isos $ qemu
The program 'qemu' can be found in the following packages:
 * qemu-system-arm
 * qemu-system-mips
 * qemu-system-misc
 * qemu-system-ppc
 * qemu-system-sparc
 * qemu-system-x86
Try: sudo apt-get install <selected package>
bb@yte ~/isos $ sudo apt-get install qemu-system-x86

qemu-system-x86 is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
bb@yte ~/isos $ qemu-system-x86
qemu-system-x86: command not found
bb@yte ~/isos $
What am I doing wrong, also tryed sudo apt-get install qemu but that also says its newest version

alright I don't understand why but I got it working with qemu-system-x86_64 as opposed to qemu-system-x86 or qemu. This realy needs to be documented.
