Thanks for the quick answer. What I would like to do is send a command, start 
qemu, from Vim to neighbouring konsole session so I can watch it if 
necessary. I started konsole with the --script option, and on the surface it 
is not different than an ordinary Konsole session. I guess I have to write an 
application. I am really novice about KDE development. I have never done any 
programming in KDE before. So considering this fact, can you give more 
information please?
