Anbox will not launch in Linuxmint 18.3

  • this was posted to git hub but no response was received.
    OS is Linuxmint 18.3 Cinnamon 64bit (dual boot Windows 10 not used)
    Linuxmint is derivative of Ubuntu

Anbox seemed to install properly with terminal command
User@mycomputer~$ snap install --classic anbox-installer && anbox-installer

After the required reboot, clicking on the Anbox icon brings up the “Starting…” splash screen but does not proceed from there. Terminal commands like anbox version, anbox session-manager give the same error message 3 times. it is

ERROR: object ‘’ from /etc/ cannot be preloaded (cannot open shared object file): ignored.

though anbox session manager also include
[ 2018-02-10 06:50:27] [daemon.cpp:58@Run] bind: Address already in use

When I look for libesets_pac.sp this seems to be associated with my virus software ESET NOD 32

right clicking on the anbox icon then “uninstall” leads to something like “no associated application”

help needed…!
