Android apps in Fedora 31

Recommended Posts

macoman    2,679

I tried searching online but all options are a dark end. I know that it is require the command line and tried anbox but in fedora you need to run it with the snap store tool but the problem is that it is really complicated and does not run. Are there any other tool that will allow to run android apps without installing android studio and be compatible with Fedora?

natively I'm not sure but I'm sure most of the android emulators have a linux version if that's an option

 

edit: as for anbox it doesn't seem that complicated to install; just a few commands. Is this the guide you're following? https://docs.anbox.io/userguide/install.html

 

edit2: I found another guide that shows a different install method that may be a bit easier; doesn't seem like this method includes installing extra kernel modules if that's the part tripping you up https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/run-android-apps-games-linux/

that guide is for debian based distro... it would be better if we can find a better guide or tool that would allow to install in Fedora 31. I tried all that I already found and I never able to see the anbox application manager in the app list.

the snap commands will be same regardless of distro type as that's universal. only the kernel module installation would differ slightly as that's using the native package installer of the particular distros so that's why I posted the 2nd guide as that may work better since there's no extra kernel install that I see

I will try to give a second try when I get back home
