install anbox on bunsenlabs

So I want to be able to use apps that I use on my iphone but in stead on my linux operating system, but according to various sources, I will need the following, snap and anbox.

I installed snap, and then following the tutuorial posted on

anbox tut

I installed anbox.

But here is the thing. It still doesn't work. According to the article, I needed something called adb, which I also installed according to hereadb tut

Now I am lost. I have no idea what I need to do next to make anbox work.

Anyone ever tried to use anbox on debian? Any suggestion or idea?

P.S. I ran the command

sudo snap start anbox

It says it started but nothing shows up. I guess it just doesn't work on debian

I looked around the website on anbox tuturial and I realized I dont have this command

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:morphis/anbox-support

I don't have ppa. Is there a way around this issue?

Re: install anbox on bunsenlabs

For starters Don't Break Debian by adding Ubuntu PPA's!

There is a package for Stretch in backports:

https://packages.debian.org/stretch-backports/anbox

Re: install anbox on bunsenlabs

The software-properties-common package isn't part of a default Debian install because abusing add-apt-suppository will make Debian shit itself

(sorry, couldn't resist)

It'd be safe enough if you add backports with it, not ppas though, for backports, if you're unsure how to add them re-run bl-welcome in a terminal & let the script add backports.

Have a careful read of this: How can I add new software?

And read up on not messing up your sources.

Re: install anbox on bunsenlabs

When I tried to install the backport, this is what happened

Selecting previously unselected package libegl1:amd64.
dpkg: considering deconfiguration of libegl1-mesa:amd64, which would be broken by installation of libegl1:amd64 ...
dpkg: yes, will deconfigure libegl1-mesa:amd64 (broken by libegl1:amd64)
(Reading database ... 182147 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack .../libegl1_1.1.0-1~bpo9+1_amd64.deb ...
De-configuring libegl1-mesa:amd64 (13.0.6-1+b2) ...

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of libegl1:amd64:
libegl1:amd64 depends on libegl-mesa0; however:
  Package libegl-mesa0 is not installed.

dpkg: error processing package libegl1:amd64 (--install):

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of libegl1-mesa:amd64:

  Version of libegl1-mesa:amd64 to be configured is 13.0.6-1+b2.

dpkg: error processing package libegl1-mesa:amd64 (--install):

Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.24-11+deb9u3) ...

p.s. I tried fixing the problem by following the thread on "How can I add new softwares" and it says "cannot fix the problem, you have held broken packages."

Re: install anbox on bunsenlabs

configure backports (or let bl-welcome do it) then install by

sudo apt install -t stretch-backports anbox

dpkg can't pull in needed packages as it goes, with backports set up apt (or gdebi) can.
because anbox is in contrib, you'll need contrib & non-free set up for backports as well as the main sources lines.

Thanks, well, it is finally installed, but when I ran

anbox check features

it told me my computer does not meet all requirements to run anbox. I guess that's it for this then. But thank you guys so much for all the help! ^_^

Really appreciated.

Re: install anbox on bunsenlabs

Are you sure you have an iphone? I didn't think they used Android.

If what you want is Android on a linux box, then why not install it in a virtual machine, like Virtualbox, qemu, VMWare etc. Or a systemd-container?

Well, what I need is an Android emulator, one that allows me to use apps on my linux.

I thought Android emulator allows me to use the apps that I use on iphone. Do you know what other softwares that I can try?
