Installing the Eclipse ADT

Common bugs/problems with the Android SDK the Emulator and the ADT-Plugin.

Installing the Eclipse ADT

Postby gmseed » Sun Oct 07, 2012 3:38 pm


I've instaled jdk7_u7, Eclipse Juno 4.2, Android SDK/ADT on a Win7 64-bit laptop without any problems.

I'm now trying to perform a similar setup on a 32bit Ubuntu 12.04 laptop.

I followed the instructions at: ... g-adt.html

Everything went fine apart from:

"Once Eclipse restarts, you must specify the location of your Android SDK directory:

In the "Welcome to Android Development" window that appears, select Use existing SDKs."

I just didn't see the configuration window?

I see that other people have also experienced this problem: ... snt-appear

However, if I follow the suggested instructions of:

"Try this
Window > Customize Perspective > Menu Visibility > Expand 'File' > Expand 'New' > Tick 'Android Project'
and Then, look for new Android application project"

I don't see the Android Project listed.

If I go back to Help|Install New Software I can see that all of the ADT plugins are installed. Indeed, if I attempt to reinstall it complains that they are already installed, so things look ok.

So, does anyone know how I see the Android ADT Plugins in Eclipse?
