    Unhappy Android SDK install


    I don't think the people at the ubuntu forum website will be able to help me, as they never do. My college book doesn't answer this either. But I'm trying to install Android SDK and I'm stuck here....

    Just extract the archive into a directory. There is no other installation necessary. All the files are there, and there is nothing to run, if you're thinking of a GUI all-inclusive program. An SDK is a Software Development Kit. It's just a collection of tools, which you use to develop software for Android. What were you expecting?
