Don't know why you need it to run in a terminal, but using:

konsole -e ~/rpcemu/rpcemu

should do the job.

In Ubuntu it may be easier to make a desktop link to rpcemu,

right click on your desktop and choose -> New -> Link to location or -> Link
to program

A window will open in which you can set it up.
