This is our first “we should probably make a release” public release of the Shashlik technology.
Having released a teaser video, we wanted to put out some binaries so people can start to test Shashlik for themselves.
It’s still very much an early prototype snapshot, but it should allow you to run some apps and games on your desktop.
The version number arbitrarily starts with 0.9 to indicate it will be a beta for quite some time, while we increment releases via the third digit 0.9.x as we add features and fixes towards a 1.0 release.
Getting the .deb release package
UPDATE 0.9.1: Get the latest package here (0.9.1).
PREVIOUS 0.9: You can download the (K)ubuntu-compatible package from from here (0.9) (Note: this is currently tested only to work under a KDE Plasma 5 environment).
Once installed grab any Android application package (APK) from the net.
For example our favourite app, Flappy Bird, can be found here: http://beste-apps.chip.de/android/app/flappy-bird-apk-android-app,cxo.66885070/
Note: If the APK has native code (which most do) the APK must have x86 support.
Then when asked what to open with type “/opt/shashlik/bin/shashlik-install”.
The app should now be available in the application menu alongside your other apps.
