Installing GenyMotion on your ubuntu 14


Android App
– Added exception handling and error checking for request and response
– Updated the Drive->Requirements->Detailed Requirements, added Section 13 for future exception handling rules
– Installed GenyMotion Freemium, added all 4.x devices

We can test the app on the virtualbox, we dont need to invest on devices, I think 🙂

For installing GenyMotion

Install the Emulators 4.4 (only)
After you load the emulator you will Google Play is not installed, for that the following links are useful.

Super Fast Ubuntu 11.04


I have a AMD laptop, not to mention that upgrading screwed bootup, I had to do a safe mode and uninstall nvidia drivers and install ati drivers. Finally got it up :), and was hit by slow, really slow ui. Researched a bit and found the following steps to install 2d, now works like a charm, SUPER FAST. This is the real ubuntu man..

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:unity-2d-team/unity-2d-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity-2d
select unity-2d as your desktop
