How to fix Genymotion in Ubuntu 14.04?

Genymotion is a free emulator for android os.

I downloaded it from https://www.genymotion.com and installed it in ubuntu 14.04

To install it,
cd <DOWNLOAD_DIR>
chomod +x genymotion-<VERSION>_<ARCH>.bin
./genymotion-<VERSION>_<ARCH>.bin -d <HOME_DIRECTORY>

To run

cd <HOME_DIRECTORY>/genymotion
./genymotion

It should open a window and ask for adding new device.

But for me, it is not opening.
The command exits and shows the shell.

It logged the activities at
Logging activities to file: ~/.Genymobile/genymotion.log

It displayed the error message as

Cannot mix incompatible Qt library (version 0x40806) with this library (version 0x40802)

Searched net for a solution and sharing it here.

1 – Installing the libs:

apt-get install libxi-dev libxmu-dev

2 – (Re)Moving the Qt libs inside the Genymotion installation directory

mkdir QtLibs && mv *Qt*.so* QtLibs

This last command will make Genymotion use the system’s Qt libs.

Then, ran ./genymotion

Now it opens the window and can add new virtual android devices.

Thanks for the askubuntu community.
