What is the best way to run android apps on Manjaro KDE?

I also need to run google play apps. just a few not a lot.

Try Anbox

You can install anbox-git from the AUR. There are many related packages in the AUR as well, including an image. :arrow_down:

pamac build anbox-git anbox-image

will I run the command? then my anbox will install?

Yes, that is correct, but as I said, there are many Anbox-related packages in the AUR, and depending on what you have in mind, you may also want to install and play with some of those other ones. :wink:

brother I ran the command. it’s taking time. is it okay?



Yes, that is normal. You have to keep in mind that most software in the AUR ─ not all, but most ─ is supplied as source code only, and so if you install such a package, then it must first be compiled from source code into an installable binary package on your local computer.

Depending on the size of the package, this can take quite a bit of time, but whatever you do, don’t interrupt the process or power down your computer. Just let it build and do its thing. And if the computer becomes unresponsive or slow, don’t worry; this is normal, because compiling is very CPU- and RAM-intensive.

brother, after installing anbox, when i click anbox icon it opens then automatic close the anbox application. what is the problem brother?

I’m afraid this is something I cannot tell you, because I have no experience with Anbox. Maybe you need to load the image first? :man_shrugging:

not working. :cry: then how to uninstall it? please help me brother.

Well, the official website does state that it’s still beta-grade software and that it won’t work for everyone. :man_shrugging:

Uninstalling it again is easy; you do it via the Pamac GUI, just as you would with any other package.
