Unable to start ADT


#1

Hello. Thank you so much for this book. I’m very excited to get started.
However, I’m not able to start ADT for some reason.
I’m running Ubuntu 10.04 and I downloaded the latest ADT bundle. JDK 6 is installed.
Extracted the archive into my home folder… go to eclipse directory… double click eclipse.
When i do this the splash screen comes up, asks me to select a workspace… I choose a fresh folder in the home directory.
The splash screen goes grey from that point and hangs. Any ideas?

UPDATE

I got it to work by running the executable via the command line using the -nosplash flag.

./eclipse -nosplash

I have no idea why i have to suppress the splash screen like that.

I have no idea, either. I’m glad to hear you were able to work through the issue, though.
