@alexl seems like anbox has progressed nicely since I last took a look. Is it x86 only? Would be cool to see if it could run under sailfish os as a replacement to aliendalvik.

@alexl Fancy! #FDroid works out of the box on it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

@alexl #osmand (which I'd really like to use on the desktop) crashes though. ๐Ÿ˜ž

@DaD Linux apps on Android? It's possible but not with general Android kernel. IIRC Samsung has a feature to run Linux apps and ships a specific kernel

@alexl I wish they did something to support non-ubuntu

@alexl interesting, does it depend on KDE at all??

@alexl @rugk oh, uses LXCโ€ฆ so it's not portable to other OSes directlyโ€ฆ

@alexl
> usses containers
doesn't really aound that native

@fence I insist, an application run natively in a container and Android apps are compiled by ART before execution

@alexl WOAH, looking so cool. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Maybe I should give a #Linux another #Try, at the End of the Year when I have some Time to spare. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

@BranTarik @alexl is this the stuff (anbox) that promises to deliver android apps on Linux phones like the Ubuntu Touch and Purism?

@thinkMoult didn't even know about #AnBox, just #discovered it right now trough #searching for it because of your #Toot. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

@BranTarik yeah, the fediverse is great for getting exposed :)

@alexl Is this just Anbox or does it involve some special tricks?

@jlelse it's just Anbox, but if you use KDE Plasma and want to make titlebar colors match apps' headerbar there is a trick of mine: alexl.netsons.org/78/

@tA looks to be software called anbox
basically android userland in a linux container by the looks

@alexl can you please explain what do you mean by running natively?
