Android - Installation - On Linux Ubuntu 64-bit with a 32-bit ADT version

You can easily use the following Windows Android setup tutorial to install the Android Development Tools on your Linux system except that you will need the 32-bit libraries and install a JDK.

Note that all these things, could be done by simply download a bundle especially made by Google.

The 32-bit libraries

So open your favorite shell and type this:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

A huge list of libraries will be available. Select all and continue.

The Java Development Kit (JDK)

You must have a Java version on your system, so there is an open source version, called OpenJDK. To install, just type this line:

sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jdk

I recommend to do not install the version 7 due to a lack of security.

Create a new project

Once downloaded, open your Eclipse and create a new Android project.

Then Run as Android application.

Well done! angel
