The problem:

A week ago, after some update(not really sure which one), I faced a very frustrating issue: I could not start my android emulator(AVD) anymore. It failed with a not very informative error:

I say that it is not very  informative because it talks about glx and dri, while the actual problem is with libstdc++.so.6 which provided with the Android SDK. So in order to make the Android Emulator work again, we will have tor replace it with the system default libstdc++.so.6

The solution( fixing android emulator)

This fix android emulator assumes that you have android sdk installed at ~/Android/Sdk . This is the default path when installing Android Studio on Linux. If you have it under different directory please replace ~/Android/Sdk with the path to your sdk in the first line.

And that is all, folks. Android Emulator should start properly.
