Anbox is not compatible with Zorin OS


I got an error when installing Anbox on Zorin OS, based on Debian and Ubuntu:

"ERROR: You are running the installer on an unsupported distribution.
At the moment we only support the following distributions:

Ubuntu, LinuxMint, neon, elementary…"

Zorin OS is half Ubuntu. Is it because it’s also half Debian why the installer stopped? Also, please provide a way to install the Google Play Store components, like an activation APK, or something…


Hi, it appears that Anbox does support Zorin but you need to make use of a seperate available install script. I found it on


If somebody gives it a try and provides a PR against anbox-installer stating that it works well, we can enable Zorin OS by default.
