How to install ROBLOX/GeForce Now in Linux

Just a quick note before the post: If this looks familiar, that’s because it is. It is highly based off of my old post from my old blog.

WARNING: THIS REQUIRES A BEEFY COMPUTER! ALSO: GENYMOTION IS FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY. DO NOT USE IT FOR BUSINESS. ALSO: THIS IS MEANT FOR POP!_OS…

  • Download GenyMotion from here
  • Reboot
  • Set up GenyMotion and choose the Google Pixel 3 on Android 9
  • Install Android Oreo ARM Package shown here (Drag and drop)
  • Reboot VIRTUAL DEVICE
  • Install GAPPS (Click the button to the right, near the top of the window, marked OpenGApps)
  • Reboot VIRTUAL DEVICE
  • Download the latest ROBLOX apk here and/or GeForce Now from here.
    • Hint: type “com.roblox.client” without quotes for the ROBLOX client.
  • Install (Drag and drop)
  • Once you have done all those steps, it should work!
    • Disclaimer: You might have to do a ton of captchas!

How to: Add a USB controller

Ok so basically you have to add yourself to the group “vboxusers” by running:

sudo usermod -a -G vboxusers $USER

and rebooting. Then download the VirtualBox Extensions Pack and install it. Lastly, go to your Virtual Machine Settings for your device (should be the name of your Genymotion instance), then go to USB, change it to USB 2.0, and add your USB controller (Mine was called “GAME For Windows” because mine was a bootleg XBOX 360 Controller made for Windows.) Apply changes, click OK, BUT DO NOT START IT FROM VIRTUALBOX. Instead, close VirtualBox, and start it from GenyMotion. Ta-da! It should now work!

OK, why was my bio so cringe-worthy? I mean: I was a little kid.... oh well.
