Ubuntu 10.10 and command line scripts?
I know my way around MS Windows much better, but I just don't feel right trying to program something for Android on a Microsoft operating system.
I am interested in Android programming so I followed the instructions on http://developer.android.com/sdk/installing.html to install the environment on my computer...
I just installed the JDK, SDK, Eclipse successfully (or I assume):
* When I get to Step 4 where I'm supposed to run 'android' it will not run. I get the error message "android: command not found" (I am definitely in the right directory).
** When I double-click it in nautilus, it opens up in gedit. I can set the permissions in nautilus (through the properties - Allow executing file as a program) and get it to work, but this is really bugging me.
Can someone point me in the right direction as how I can run scripts like this from the command line?

If you are in the directory containing the file you need to use
I'm at work now, but when I get home, I'm going to have to try that. I can see the "Hello, World" already...
Okay, so it's still not working... here is what I've tried:
bash: ./android: Permission denied
me:~/Droid/android-sdk-linux_x86/tools$ sudo ./android
[sudo] password for me:
sudo: ./android: command not found
me:~/Droid/android-sdk-linux_x86/tools$ gksu ./android
(On the 3rd attempt, it looks like something is running, but the window for android never pops up...
Change to the directory (in Terminal) where the android file is located, then type chmod +x android. After that, try it again.
-rw------- 1 me me 3443 2011-02-16 20:48 android
me:~/Droid/android-sdk-linux_x86/tools$ chmod +x android
-rwx--x--x 1 me me 3443 2011-02-16 20:48 android
SUCCESS!! THANK YOU!
