FWIW Here I just use a simple ROX app that launches RPCEmu by running an
executable file containing

#! /bin/sh
cd /home/jim/RPCemu/rpcemu-0.8.11
exec ./rpcemu

Thus one click on the 'icon bar' on my Linux setup pops up RPCEmu!

(Yes, I'm still using an ancient version. 8-] Not yet got the round tuits
to get a newer one! In the main I use an ARMX6, and only need RPCEmu
occasionally for ancient software/files purposes. )
