    Question android/eclipse strange behavior


    Hi all - Well i bought android Samsung Galaxy and am all up for doing some Java on it , but just as i am getting there i get stuck with:

    Code:
    [2011-09-03 20:27:51 - adb]Failed to get the adb version: Cannot run program "/home/tom/android/android-sdk-linux_x86/platform-tools/adb": java.io.IOException: error=2, No such file or directory
    from eclipse.

    At first, i thought the adb files was not being found, but now i think it ts the adb program not able to find a file? But what file?

    Being a total newb on both android and eclipse, with many years of Java i can use all the help i can get - Thanks!

    I believe you have the Tegra II chip, which is an arm processor. You might try the arm developers kit to see what you can do. I have a netbook with an arm chip and android 2.1, and could never get it to act the least bit like linux. Good luck.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I realise i am in between topics here. This *is* a Linux forum, and the best one in my opinion.

    What i am trying to do is use:

    1. Linux Mint 11
    2. eclipse Galileo
    3. Google's emulator

    I want to do dev on Linux, using eclipse, and then test on the Galaxy (or whatever) later. Google has an emulator for each version of android (froyo, gingerbread etc).

    The problem i am having is with the eclipse plugin for android.

    If anyone knows a better place to post this (even a different forum) please let me know. I am totally flexible with my Linuses and or dev tools as i am just starting out with this android project.

    Thanks!

    PS android seems to love Linux. It's windows users that have to jump through hoops - lol.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Android has it's own byte-code interpreter for Java applications called Dalvik. You have to recompile your Java applications to run on it. Go to Google.com and subscribe to their developer services and you can get an android simulator (virtual machine) and all the eclipse tools you will need to build/test/deploy android applications.

    Further reading of your last post tells me that you are getting close, but still are having problems with the eclipse plug-in. My suggestion would be to go to the android developer's forums at google and post there for more expert help.

    Thanks

    Thanks Rubberman - you are right, I am sooooo close.

    I will give the Google forums a try. I see others having the same problem, so i am sure there is a fix.

    Thumbs up Got it!

    A very helpful place for this kind of stuff turns out to be Android Forums - within an hour i was up and running with eclipse/android - the right Java - etc. This is now solved, and i recommend that you check adroid forums for this type of problem...

    Thanks to those who helped/tried! This forum is always the goto place in general.
