WARNING: Before you go ahead and install Anbox on your system, please keep in mind that Anbox is not yet stable. Not every feature is working well yet. You will find bugs, see crashes and unexpected problems. As this is a Git package, patches should go upstream as they will not be bundled with the package.

@Vrakfall: This version will ensure that the X11 DISPLAY variable has been set before starting Anbox, which should be more reliable.

Description=Anbox Session Manager

ExecStartPre=/usr/bin/printenv DISPLAY
ExecStart=/usr/bin/anbox session-manager

@redchenjs: I'm not good at all in systemd but can't we make it depend on X's startup instead, like the graphical target. Sleeping a few seconds seems too uncertain and random to me.

Hi @irtimmer: if anbox-session-manager.service runs before Xorg is ready, it will always fail:

XIO:  fatal IO error 0 (Success) on X server ":0"
      after 231 requests (231 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

Add a startup delay and enable auto-restart could solve this problem:

Description=Anbox Session Manager

ExecStartPre=/usr/bin/sleep 3s
ExecStart=/usr/bin/anbox session-manager

@Vrakfall The patch is already applied upstream.

Well thank you very much @cschmid @irtimmer , i will check that ! As for the average response time of the maintainer, it's got lastly updated on 2019/05/14 i don't have much hope in that matter.

@cschmid: Tho the patch showed in the forum link in that issue could be applied in this package until then. (I think I've seen the average response time of the upstream maintainer is around a month...)

@Bramken: This seems to be a general build regression and has already been reported on upstream. Link to ticket:
