Menu android sdk manager not visible by default
Last modified: 2013-02-28 10:56:34 EST
Description of problem:
The menu android sdk manager and android virtual device manager is not visible by default in windows -> android sdk manager.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Fresh installation of fedora 18 and fedora eclipse
1.Search at eclipse marketplace android SDK tools by google.
2.Install the default nstallation. Next, next next...
3.Menu window -> ? not android sdk manager at the bottom
Menu window -> sdk manager not visible
Menu window -> sdk manager visible
This is necesary to follow correctly the android tutorial at Google.
Workaround: window -> customize perspective -> command groups availability -> check Android SDK and ADV Manager
Does the same problem happens with eclipse downloaded from eclipse.org?
If you need to enable Android SDK and ADV Manager in the window->customize perspective, it means that it is not enabled on purpose.
Have you changed the perspecive to one related to Android?
I also notice this happens with the official google bundle on mac and linux.
Alexander: I didn't test it but as I said it also happens with the official eclipse bundle SDK (I guess it's 4.2 eclipse)
Ktzysztof: In the main instructions on android they ask about start this menu, and a people get lost at this point, because there's not menu (until you go to window->customize perspective).
Since this happens also on MAC users, is the bug not related to eclipse and the package shipped for fedora?
Yes, it's not Eclipse and not Fedora bug.
The bug is either in Android tools or in their documentation, please contact them to resolve it.
Closing the bug as there is nothing we can do about it.
