Eclipse and Android (Adt Bundle ) setting on Ubuntu 12.04

September 16, 2013

We are going to install Eclipse as part of the Google Android Developer Tools (ADT) bundle.

The installation process is very simple depending on which Eclipse you select to use.The procedure for installing Eclipse from Google’s ADT bundle are given as .

  1. Browse the given link to download the latest ADT bundle and check it with your system compatibility (32 bit or 64 bit version) adt-bundle-linux-x86-20130729 or adt-bundle-linux-x86_64-20130729
  2. Extract the the downloaded files from your favorite directory
    unzip ~/Downloads/
    unzip ~/Downloads/

    The new folder ‘adt-bundle-linux-x86_64-20130729’ on your favorite directory will create . Note that by installing ADT and Eclipse in the home directory(favorite directory), only the current user can use them. If, however, you want Eclipse to be accessed by other users, then you may have to install the version from Ubuntu’s repository. After the Extraction of files is completed than browse the folder where your ADT-BUNDLE-LINUX-X86_64 reside as given below
    cd /home/rimaig/Downloads/adt-bundle-linux-x86/eclipse

    The first time Eclipse is started, choose your workspace directory for android projects and save it, as in my case is /home/

        For quick lunch of Eclipse application
Paste the given command in the gedit window and save it, and make changes according to your system setting as the location of the eclipse executable in my case is ‘/home/rimaig/adt-bundle-linux-x86_64-20130729/eclipse/eclipse’ – yours may be different. Also make sure that the location of the icon for Eclipse is valid – use the one found in the /home/rimaig/adt-bundle-linux-x86_64-20130729/eclipse/ directory – the file is called icon.xpm. Save and close gedit.
