Troubleshooting: Genymotion 3.2.0After upgrading to Genymotion 3.2.0 on Jan 27, 2021, on MacOS, I had a lot of problems.
I solved them by downgrading to the previous version. You can get the previous version here:
Ubuntu UsersIf you are using Ubuntu, execute these commands:You should see the name of the downloaded file, which should be something like genymotion-2.7.2-linux_x64.bin. Use that name in the next two commands:
