Learn how to download and install BlueStacks on your Linux computer. Read this post to find out how you can run Android apps on your Ubuntu (or any other Linux) computer using the best Android emulator software.
Hi, guys today i will be discussing BlueStacks for Ubuntu Linux. Here i will be concentrating on Ubuntu Linux, As I think most of the people will resonate with this article if we talk about Ubuntu rather than any other Linux distort like Linux Mint, Debian, openSUSE or anything else.
We all know bluestacks is a popular Android emulator which is pretty perfect. Though there are many other Android emulators out there in the market, bluestacks is the most popular one among all. If you specifically talk about bluestacks alternatives, there are a lot of them out there. I won’t be able to talk much about other emulator software in this article. In short, i would like to say that “bluestacks is no longer the top Android emulator, you should try other softwares.”

BlueStacks For Ubuntu and BlueStacks For Other Linux Distros
Now let’s come to the main topic of this post, which is bluestacks for Linux distros especially Ubuntu. If you check the official website of BlueStacks for downloading it, you will notice this piece of software is available for two major operating systems – Microsoft’s Windows and Apple’s Mac.
I own a few computers Myself. I own all type of computers, for instance, i own 2 Windows PC’s, 2 Apple’s Mac (specifically an iMac) and a few old computers running various Linux Distros on them like Ubuntu 16.04, Linux Mint, Fedora, etc. When bluestacks was first launched, I tried it like crazy as i used to love playing video games (I still do:)). I installed it on my two computers. While using it on my computers i noticed a few things like – I think that the developers have created this software for Windows 7 users, it works best with that operating system. I Also noticed that the bluestacks for Mac receive very few updates when compare to bluestacks for PC.
But when it comes to Linux, There is no BlueStacks. So yeah the truth is there is no bluestacks app player available for Ubuntu or any other Linux computers.
But wait… don’t close the page, thinking this post is Useless (because it’s not).
It’s really sad that BlueStacks don’t have any Linux version. But, don’t worry there is a workaround to this problem, Read the rest of the post.
