I installed VirtualBox and Genymotion on Ubuntu 18.04

But, when I run Genymotion it starts to boot and it shows me that it's not able to find VirtualBox, but looking at logs this fails:

2019-03-23T21:38:36+01:00 [Genymotion:16700] [critical] Unable to find VM Engine. Plugin loading aborted.

Any idea ?
