the original question was that when i started qemu to emulate a machine it didnt show the normal window that you usually get, but instead all the output of the machine went to virtual terminal in F8...

I mean, I had to Ctrl + Alt + F7 to go back to my host desktop which is not usual... then i figured out that when i run the program as root that happens but as a normal user it shows the normal window that you have to use Ctrl+Alt to take control of the mouse and so on.
