When I open virt-manager GUI it doesn't show list of KVMs but virsh does. how can fix it?

If you see a connection for localhost (QEMU) listed, double click it.

If you don't see any connections listed, go to File > Add Connection, leave all the defaults set as they are, then click Add.

I see localhost (QEMU), but double clicking only brings the details windows. I need to see VMs. Thanks – Zim3r Aug 17 '12 at 8:06
So it shows as Connected but you have no virtual machines listed? This would have been useful to know in the beginning. – Michael Hampton Aug 17 '12 at 8:12
Yes it's connected, and I have 5 VMs running but it doesn't show them, Thanks – Zim3r Aug 17 '12 at 8:15
some help please. – Zim3r Aug 17 '12 at 8:39
I can connect to virt-manager remotely and it works fine but locally there is problem – Zim3r Aug 17 '12 at 11:51
