How to run .apk files with ARCHon in Arch Linux


The Android system is quite popular. It is based on the Linux gives, although I still do not know which of Distribution of family-TOP.
Due to the huge number of applications written to open source. These applications can be useful and, unfortunately, there are some among them is terrible. The downloadable applications are provided with an extension .apk. Simply download the Google Play store and the Internet can also access them.
Is there a way in the Linux world, the .apk files that can run on different distributions. Yes, it is reported to me an interesting situation.
Currently I am working on Arch Linux, and since the AUR help me, so I thought one and tried to run an application downloaded .apk files.
The program is called none other than Arch. AUR from easy to install, so who or Arch Arch-based distribution is, they can easily access.
We have to do as a way to open a terminal and type the following command:

yaourt -Ss archon

Yaou can see the following list:

1 aur/archon 2.1.0-9
Execute Android APKs
2 aur/archon-exec 1.2-1
Wrapper script for launching Android APK files with ARChon
==> Enter n° of packages to be installed (ex: 1 2 3 or 1-3)
==> -------------------------------------------------------

You can see that there are two options you can choose from.

The first is the program itself, and the second command is needed to implement the program.
For us, both are important so add the following numbers at Terminal> 1-2.
Successful installation, if everything is true. :slight_smile:

Locate the .apk file to be between loading run, and then right click on the file and to associate the archon was at once or even longer can run the file.

Thats easy. :smile:
