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 https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/, you must try using http://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/ instead (no SSL version).

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