Is /usr/bin/qemu-kvm missing in qemu-kvm/artful-updates,artful-security,now 1:2.10+dfsg-0ubuntu3.5 amd64?

I am unable to find /usr/bin/qemu-kvm in any package in the repo.

  • As far as I can tell it is just kvm, not qemu-kvm - packages.ubuntu.com/artful/amd64/qemu-kvm/filelist – Panther Mar 8 '18 at 23:03
  • I actually figured out my problem. It was the Emulator line in a VM XML I pulled over from a Fedora install. The reason I was looking for this file is because it did exist in 16.04. – Jason Barnes Mar 12 '18 at 14:34

You don't actually need that package. All it does is provide a two-line shell script:

$ cat /usr/bin/kvm
exec qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm "$@"
$ _
