Install Android SDK on Eclipse On Linux Distributions

To start developing Android apps we need to first choose an IDE platform or environment. I recommend Eclipse. It is really good and efficient to develop android apps. I will give the step by step installation of Eclipse and set up it to develop android apps.

Reqired Steps:

1. Open a terminal by typing Ctrl+F2
2. Type 'sudo apt-get install eclipse' enter, enter your password , this will install Eclipse platform.
3.  After installation open Eclipse from installed apps. When it is opening it will ask you workspace folder which is contains the application folders, choose or create as you want.

Now it is time to get Android SDK:

4. There are versions for linux distributions get the latest and convenient version for your system from:
The Android SDK is a compressed folder. Download and extract the contents of this
file to a convenient place on your computer. You should install the SDK where you usually put your
development tools. Open SDK file you will see a file as tools, in that file click android script and click run to run it. This will install Android SDK.

Both Eclipse and the Android SDK are installed. It's time to install the Eclipse plug-in
to take advantage of the Eclipse environment.

Obtaining and Installing the Eclipse plug-in

1. Run the "Find and Install" feature in Eclipse, found under the Help >Software Updates menu.
2. Select the Search for new features to install option.
3. Select New Remote Site. Give this site a name, such as "Android Developer Tools," for example. Use the following URL in the dialog: Please note the HTTPS in the URL. This is a secure download.

4. A new entry is added to the list and is checked by default. Click Finish. The search results display the Android Developer Tools. Select the Developer Tools and click Next.
5. After reviewing and accepting the license agreement, click Next. Note that the license agreement includes a special requirement for use of the Google Maps API.
6. Review and accept the installation location, then click Finish.

The plug-in is now downloaded and installed. The plug-in is not signed (at the time
of writing), so proceed at your own comfort level by clicking on Install All, then
restart Eclipse.
