mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix`
make
sudo make install

That should do it.

First, this is a very handy tool!

It would be nice if it would be possible to start VMs also in headless mode.

Could (or will) you implement such a feature?

 Does not work for me :(

Hello!

I installed the krunner-plugin, but it does not work. I can (un)check it in the krunner configuration, but when I type the name of my machine, nothing is found! Do I need to enter something special?

The plugin looks for file $HOME/.VirtualBox/VirtualBox.xml, so please ensure that this file exists and is readable.

If it is there, please send me it, so I can test the plugin on my box.

Also it would be helpful, if you could kill krunner (killall krunner), then run krunner from the terminal, try to launch your vm and pastebin the console output.

This is the console output:

krunner(21376) VBoxConfigReader::updateAsNeccessary: Could not parse machine file "/home/iggy/.VirtualBox//home/iggy/Programs/virtualbox/machine/Windows XP/Windows XP.xml"

Thanks for the quick fix. Now it works. One thing is still annoying: If I enter the name of my machine, many documents are found, which contain the string. All these matches are listed first, so I have to scroll to find the vbox-runner entry. Is there a way to put it at the first position, something like a priority?

Try the new version. Now if you type your VM name exactly, it should be on top. You can also use "vm" prefix, so "vm Wind" should run your VM named "Windows".

Nice one, the need to launch a virtualbox's manager every time is so bothersome.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
