This particular binary might require specific installation instructions... I assume this old 2019 build is from before they migrated to Snap, and it certainly makes sense to keep this around because I am not installing Snap. But specific instructions for *this build* are nonexistent, and the generic build instructions don't work *because* this build is outdated. Personally gonna try to build from source. Edit: also I suppose this build might not be compatible with the latest versions of the Linux kernel and Linux Mint...
Broken through the app manager
First, I had to install the modules ashmen and binder following mullerivan at https://github.com/anbox/anbox/issues/1532 Also, as Linux mint doesn't accept snaps i needed to follow the procedure explained in https://www.journaldev.com/43723/install-anbox-on-linux-mint.
It's not working on Linux Mint.
still don't work
Alternative installation: https://www.journaldev.com/43723/install-anbox-on-linux-mint; but for modules ahsmem and binder folllow mullerivan at https://github.com/anbox/anbox/issues/1532
Lo instale en Linux Mint 20.2 UMA y no funciono, al abrirlo se cierra y no deja operar.
No funciona en linux mint
Doesn't work on Mint Lmde4, or any Debian-based for that matter.
Still broken for LM 20.1 Cinnamon install via snap as that currently works
It's not simple, intuitive, easy and it's very problematic. It took a while to even get it loaded and it still didn't work, but it seems like with maybe a few more hours of troubleshooting, it might work. Big shout-out to secretdecoder for getting it working, but I've decided to give up and I'm going the VM route, which I've had much better luck with. I'm not giving it a 1 because I see potential in Anbox and it looks like in other environments it could be just fine. I'll continue to play with it, as time permits and provide updates and, hopefully, better instructions.
I succeeded in getting anbox to run on LM 20.1 Cinnamon (Mac Air 7,2). I couldn't do it directly from the Software Manager. I had to go through the terminal. 1) Install snap 2) install anbox 3) install adb (android developer bridge to sideload APK program files). Follow the directions here: https://snapcraft.io/install/anbox/mint When I snap installed anbox here was the terminal command: sudo snap install anbox --beta --devmode I got GoogleMaps working in it for instance. You need x86 or universal APK files for them to run in anbox too. Was trying to get Xfinity streaming working under anbox but it is am64 only. Anyway - it will run. But takes effort. And there are further caveats within it for which Android apps will run.
doesn't work on linux mint!
Doesn't seem to work in LM 20.1 either. Launch splash box shows for 30 secs, then nothing.
Does not start in LM20. anbox system-info shows binder:false. After create mkdir /dev/binder and mount -t binder /dev/binder show binder:true but now Failed to connect to socket /run/anbox-container.socket: No such file or directory
I'm an ultra newbie but even I know Mint doesn't support Snaps natively and best I can gather...this is a Snap.
Does not work in LM 20 ... $ anbox launch --package=org.anbox.appmgr --component=org.anbox.appmgr.AppViewActivity X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation) Major opcode of failed request: 151 (GLX) Minor opcode of failed request: 3 (X_GLXCreateContext) Value in failed request: 0x0 Serial number of failed request: 111 Current serial number in output stream: 112
It doesn't work on linux mint 20 xfce the app launches with a starting status for few seconds and then disappears.
t doesn't work on Mint 20 Cinnamon. The app launches with a 'Starting' status for few seconds and then disappears.
