    Tried it like you explained, but seems that genymotion installer really wants to install it to folder :
    ~/.genymotion/genymotion
    updated path in environment consequently, but still does not start without sudo (core dumped)

      If you let it to install in ~/.genymotion folder everything should be OK? I mean that it shouldn’t ask you for sudo?
