Android SDK on Fedora 10
Had a little trouble trying to get the Android SDK running on Fedora Eclipse on Fedora 10 recently.
The problem I ran into upon attempting to install the Android Eclipse ADT was, as such:
- Following the installations Android SDK site and adding the repository site for the ADT,
- I get the following error about org.eclipse.wst.sse.ui not being found
- Which meant that the dependency checking for ADT failed, and I couldn’t get it installed.
The only tip Google could provide was that the default eclipse-platform package that Fedora 10 provided was lacking in the particular Eclipse component that the Android ADT needed, ie. org.eclipse.wst.sse.ui (and friends, presumably).
So here’s how to get around that:
- Add the Eclipse Ganymede updates repository in Help -> Software updates.. -> Available Software.. (details).
- You’ll get a new menu item in your Available Software tab: “Ganymede Update Site“
- In the search box, enter “WST Common UI“, and hit Install.
That would’ve brought in the necessary Eclipse components that the ADT requires. From there, follow the usual ADT installation instructions, and you’re done!
