Unable to start ADT


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?


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.
