    you really should open Konsole or your favorite terminal program as Carl
    suggests...but, if you _must_ use "run application" type

    [code]
    xterm -e VisualBoyAdvance
    [code]

    Okay, thanks for the help guys,

    I got it to play the game files i wanted it to play. (Just had to make the game files open with visualboy)

    but i have another issue, on ubuntu, double clicking the visualboyadvance file would open up a graphical display to change settings on it,
    here it won't do that.
    I opened it up in terminal, and got the settings, but in text form.

    this is what i get

    It sounds like you'll have to point VisualBoy to the config file. In the options, you'll see a '-c, --config=FILE.' Use this to enter the path to the file.

    Code:
    VisualBoyAdvance -c /path/to/file
