Installing the Android SDK under Debian GNU/LiNUX 5.0 Lenny

In this blog entry, I’ll try to provide some tips to get an Android development environment running under Debian GNU/LiNUX 5.0 Lenny. First of all, let’s see what documentation we have:

As a general advise for this documentation, if they state that you can install Eclipse 3.3 or Eclipse 3.4, it means that you must choose between those two options; using the latest Eclipse version, is not a good idea… you are warned!

In my case, I downloaded the Eclipse IDE for Java Developers from the Eclipse Ganymede Sr2 Packages page, as JDK I’m using the sun-java6 package provided by Debian, and I got the android-sdk-linux_x86-1.5 from Download Android 1.5 SDK, Release 3.

I only had a couple of problems with the installation, both of them already mentioned in the documentation:

  1. You must use the JDK provided by Sun, not the gcj version usually shiped with Debian; you can use update-alternatives –config java to configure what JDK version you are using.
  2. If you cannot configure the Eclipse’s remote installation URL using, you must try using instead (no SSL version).

And that’s all! Now you can start developing Android applications from Debian GNU/LINUX…
