SDK on Karmic?

Postby Lee Daniel Crocker » Thu Nov 12, 2009 4:47 am

Has anyone gotten the SDK working on Karmic? I can download, unpack, and run the tool, but it just hangs trying to get platforms and add-ons. I can get further on Jaunty, but Jaunty only comes with Eclipse 3.2.

I'm using android 2.0 SDK on Ubuntu Karmic Koala (9.10). Any problems at all. Everything works like a charm.

Doesn't work at all for me. Standard install of 32-bit karmic, added Eclipse (which brings in a lot of the development stuff), and the "android" tool fails to download any platforms or add-ons. When checking the "force http" option and pressing the "save & apply" button, the button stays down and the program hangs.

I suspected it might have something to do with the fact that Karmic uses OpenJDK by default, so I completely removed OpenJDK and installed Sun Java 6. "java -version" confirms that Sun's is the one being run. Exactly the same result. Running "android --verbose" give no help at all.

I suspect that there's some other development tools needed that aren't listed in in the Android SDK's system requirements. If I may ask, which JDK are you running, and what other development packages do you have installed (I installed ant as well)?

Ah...just found the post on the google's developer list:

export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=true

Gets it working. Now to get Eclipse working...

Wow, that's really weird. I also got everything running on Karmic with no issue. I wonder what the variable is?

I was pleased to finally have an up-to-date Eclipse in the Ubuntu repositories ('bout time...)

(off-topic) I've had other issues with Ubuntu, though, so thinking about giving Fedora a try... F11 had some serious installer problems but the upcoming release is looking better. I'd of course want to make sure Fedora played nice with all this stuff.
