To get set up for Android App development, I’m following the instructions from Google here.
I installed Eclipse through the Ubuntu Software Center (searched for “eclipse” and clicked install).
Also had to install eclipse-jdt (Java Development Tools) through the Synaptic Package Manager.
Also had to install eclipse-pdt (Plugin Development Tools) through Package Manager.
(Edit 11/11/2010: When going through this process again with Ubuntu 10.4, I used the Ubuntu Software Center instead of the Synaptic Package Manager. Also, I must have meant eclipse-pde - Plugin Development Environment, as I can’t find eclipse-pdt listed as an available package.)
Through Eclipses “Help -> Install New Software” dialog, I had to add the basic software source for eclipse (don’t know why this isn’t set up by default) which is:
and install “WST Server Adapters” which is apparently a prerequisite for the ADT plugin. Learned that from this site.
Now to try installing the android plugin (ADT) by adding
https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/ to the eclipse list of software sources.
Looks like that did it! ADT is installed… (now what’s next?)
