So, listen up - to the mandatory car analogy: suppose there is a person who doesn't know what engine, steering wheel, fuel tank, gas pedal, brake pedal in a car is, but tries to ride a tank - after being consistently unsuccessful taking his car out of the parking lot.

Your Eclipse + Java + Android are the tank.

Back on topic, sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get install-ing Eclipse had no effect. Reinstalling the Android plugin (repeatedly) had no effect.I still cannot find the "Android Project" option. The only other option I see is completely purging Eclipse and all dependencies (including configuration files) and then reinstalling it.

Ok, really? All you guys (except Kenny Strawn) made all those posts just to argue about whether or not you need eclipse to develop? God damn flamers.....

Anyways, I just wanted to throw in my two cents. I've been having the same problems and it's ever since I upgraded my Ubuntu system to 10.10. I have tried completely uninstalling the SDK, the ADT and Eclipse 3.5, then tried reinstalling it all, but to no avail.

So after some more looking around I discovered that the geniuses at xda have already figured it out. I can confirm that it works.

Here's the quote from that thread:

[SOLVED] Go to the eclipse website, download Eclipse for linux, uninstall your old eclipse, extract your new eclipse wherever and go into the folder and click the application button titled eclipse. Then reinstall all the android stuff.

I had this same problem for a while. Couldn't find a solution by googling so I hope this helps people like me.
Using Ubuntu 11.04 and eclipse galileo.

I solved it by removing the android packages, then exiting eclipse, running eclipse as root(sudo eclipse), installing the android development tools there.
(I had to add galileo repo as well as google-android to avoid another error message.)

When I started eclipse as a normal user later, it had the Android option under preferences etc.

No android option

When you drop down File>new you can find android under "other"
Took me ages to find this, hope it helps others starting out with eclipse.


android, eclipse
