Before install Waydroid, make sure that your kernel supports binder and ashmem module (currently only linux-zen does)

Keep in mind that Waydroid only works with Wayland compositors. It also does not work yet with proprietary NVIDIA driver.

After install waydroid and waydroid-image, run this command to initialize the container:

# waydroid init

Then the container can be started via waydroid-container.service. The official project group/channel can be found on:

You need to run pip3 install Cython before installing this package. It is needed to compile python-gbinder.

As of 1/16/23 I'm having issues installing, was getting an error about python missing gbinder module. The python-gbinder AUR repo installs to system python 3.11, but currently 3.10 is the version in main. So if you edit the python-gbinder PKGBUILD to checkout commit 79d40e9e564772973f7f085ed5c48e3fc625e0f5 it'll build for 3.10, then you gotta copy it over. Hope this helps.

Please add which to dependencies, waydroid won't start without it (the network scripts needs it):

This also requires wl-clipboard package to work, should be listed as an optional dependency.

after update kernel to 5.18. run waydroid upgrade -o to add sys.use_memfd=true in /var/lib/waydroid/waydroid_base.prop. some of android will override sys.use_memfd to false.

mount /usr/share/waydroid-extra/images/system.img somewhere
cd somewhere
grep -Ir sys.use_memfd

to find them. and use your favorite editor to remove them
