Install Genymotion 2.0 In Ubuntu

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.

  1. Download the Ubuntu installer from the Genymotion website
  2. Download and install the latest Virtualbox if you haven’t already
  3. Open your terminal of choice
  4. 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 and 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.
