From Genymotion Desktop 3.3.0 onwards, it is possible to switch to QEMU hypervisor instead of VirtualBox. Though it is still experimental, tests have shown better compatibility and performance with QEMU than VirtualBox on Linux.
You are trying to run Genymotion in a Linux virtual machine, a server or a Cloud service (AWS, GCP, Azure, ...)
Genymotion Desktop has been designed to run in a physical environment, not in a virtual machine. For this reason, Genymotion Desktop will not work if run in a Linux VM.
Likewise, Genymotion Desktop has been designed to run on a workstation, not a server nor a Cloud instance.
For more details, please refer to the following articles:
- Can Genymotion Desktop run in a virtual machine?
- Can Genymotion Desktop run on a server?
- Can Genymotion Desktop run in a Cloud service (AWS, Google Cloud, MS Azure, Alibaba, etc.)?
