Thanks. But I would like to know if there is a developer who has 
experience with the GUI. It is one thing to see the GUI, another to work

I would go the easy way: just before starting QEmu, hide the Tk window... 
no need for embedding.

Yes, I know this is a lame answer. But I am quite certain that most users
