The 3rd party Android emulator Genymotion announced the official release of their 2.0 version today. This is a small tutorial on how to install it in Ubuntu.
- Download the Ubuntu installer from the Genymotion website
- Download and install the latest Virtualbox if you haven’t already
- Open your terminal of choice
Run the following commands to install and set up Genymotion ```bash
Make the file executable
$ chmod +x genymotion-2.0.0_x64.bin
# Run the installer $ ./genymotion-2.0.0_x64.bin
# Move the installed directory to your home folder $ mv genymotion ~/.genymotion
# Add executables to your path $ echo ‘export PATH=“/home/$USER/.genymotion:$PATH”’ >> ~/.bashrc ```
And that’s it! Simply restart your terminal and you should now be able to run
genymotion-shell from your terminal.
TIP: You can optionally download and install the Eclipse and/or IntelliJ IDEA plugins from the Genymotion Downloads page as well.
