I just fired up the Commander X16 emulator from a Linux Command line, but I can't find on this site what key combination or command that gets you out of it back to the command line again?

ALT+F4 ?

That just closes the command window, I want it to exit X16 and go back to the command line. I could do the same thing by pressing the top right "X" to close the Window.  I assumed there would be a keyboard shortcut to get me back to my command prompt.

Actually,

I just realised that the X16 Window did close and left my command window behind it, I had opened some other Windows and assumed my command Window had closed when the X16 emulator windows closed, so apologies you are right Alt F4 does do it!

There was unexpected behavior when I tried the emulator, I couldn't get it to run past "this is not an atari demo" don't know why, it did on the first attempt give a clue in the command window but i can't remember it and having rebooted my system it doesn't repeat it at this time, however I did want to note that the archive I downloaded exploded all over the place, there were files all over the download directory and I needed a dustpan and broom to put it all into a folder for it's real home. I am too accustomed to archives producing their own home folder.

also, lunching from the command line isn't written down so if linux newbies don't know it's actually something like 

$ ./x16emu -prg software/STNICCC.PRG -run -ram 2048

so you place ./ before the emulators name to have it executed because just it's name doesn't work. Clicking on it from the gui seems ok though, on my system anyhow..

Don't know if these bits are helpful, but I thought to mention them in case they are.
