Android ADT Bundle on Centos 6.3


Setup steps for Android ADT Bundle on Centos 6.3


1) Go to http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html . Scroll down to section "DOWNLOAD FOR OTHER PLATFORMS/ADT Bundle".




2) In Centos 6.3, run Terminal Window as Root.

[centos@localhost ~]$ su 
Password: 


3) If your Centos 6.3 doesn't have Java, install Java first.
[root@localhost centos]# yum install java 

4) Download ADT bundle:
[root@localhost centos]# wget http://dl.google.com/android/adt/adt-bundle-linux-x86.zip 

4) Unzip the zipped ADT file
[root@localhost centos]# unzip adt-bundle-linux-x86.zip 

5) Move the extracted folder to /opt
[root@localhost centos]# mv adt-bundle-linux-x86 /opt 

6) The executable eclipse program is ready for execution
[root@localhost centos]# cd /opt/adt-bundle-linux-x86/eclipse 
root@localhost centos]# ./eclipse  

7) As an alternative to Step 6, we can register the path so that Centos recognize eclipse name called from any location. Follow steps 8-11.

8) Create eclipse executable binary file

[root@localhost centos]#  touch /usr/bin/eclipse 

9) Set permission to the file
[root@localhost centos]#  chmod 755 /usr/bin/eclipse 

10) Create the file using VI editor
[root@localhost centos]#  vi /usr/bin/eclipse 

11) Add entries to the file
export ECLIPSE_HOME="/opt/adt-bundle-linux-x86/eclipse"
$ECLIPSE_HOME/eclipse $*


12) Now you can just type eclipse in the terminal and Centos would know where to find its binary file.

The following is the ADT Splash Screen (a modified Eclipse)
