Anbox It is a free and open source application that acts as a compatibility layer, allowing you to use applications developed for Android on GNU / Linux. It integrates and uses the client system kernel, ie allowing superior to native performance emulation. Anbox will allow us to install Android apps on Gnu / Linux in an easy and simple way but only in some distributions, our goal is to show you how easily Deepin.
Installation of Anbox
Step 1: Install modules Kernel
As a first step visit the following link https://github.com/anbox/anbox-modules , Clone and click download, you will download a zip file, which must decompress, where you create more convenient. Once this is done, we open our file browser then entered in the unzipped folder named android-modules-master, Right click and give it to
open terminal. Then you need to copy, paste and execute one by one the following commands in the terminal:
sudo cp anbox.conf /etc/modules-load.d/ sudo cp 99-anbox.rules /lib/udev/rules.d/ sudo cp -rT ashmem /usr/src/anbox-ashmem-1 sudo cp -rT binder /usr/src/anbox-binder-1 sudo dkms install anbox-ashmem/1 sudo dkms install anbox-binder/1
Step 2: Install the Android Debug Bridge (ADB)
Proceed to install the debug bridge that will connect and interact with our GNU / Linux system Android so we provide a terminal and run the following commands:
sudo apt install adb sudo apt install android-tools-adb
Step 3: Installing the application support Snap
Since the tutorial is based on the official version of Snap Anbox we install through the terminal, said support Deepin using the following commands:
sudo apt install snapd sudo snap install --devmode --beta anbox
At the conclusion of installation and application support, delete the downloaded folder and restart the computer; eventually we find in the launcher name Deepin access Anbox Application Manager which we run with double click to start it.
Note: It could be that the launch for the first time since its shortcut, it stays on the home screen and then closes, even if you try repeatedly. to solve enough to start it once via terminal with the command:
Install applications on Android
The Anbox project is currently based on Android 7.1 Nougat and continues in beta, which means you can find countless failures as applications that do not run or close, showing no video or audio and extensive; etc.
to) We prepare system dependencies with:
sudo apt install wget curl lzip unzip squashfs-tools
b) Unload script with the following:
c) We grant permissions:
chmod +x install-playstore.sh
Now install the PlayStore in Ambox, and enable the use of ARM applications using libhoudini. All this has been automated by a script,
The installation depends on the speed of your Internet. Once you have installed the Google Play Store Services and run the following command to clean.
d) We run the script:
and) we clean:
sudo ./install-playstore.sh --clean
Note:To use the Play Store, you must access the Android settings from the gear and the Applications section and enable all permissions for it and Google Services. also you must give permission to each application that we install in the future. If still you are not allowed to login from Play Store. It should open a terminal and run:
sudo /snap/anbox/current/bin/anbox-bridge.sh start
Ready! Now it's only a matter of access with your Google credentials, and download applications.
Anbox running on Deepin 15.11
