I have copied android-sdk-linux folder from one PC to another PC, and installed Eclipse and Set appropriate paths (both tools and Platform-tools) but I cannot create any avd.

When I try to create new avd from Android Virtual Device Manager, it only show this error message in console when I click new avd.

[2012-05-29 23:29:27 - SDK Manager] Failed to create the SD card.
[2012-05-29 23:29:27 - SDK Manager] Failed to create sdcard in the AVD folder.

I put my android-sdk-linux folder in /home/dharma/Android-sdk-linux

On my pc, I didn't find home/username/.Android/avd. So what can I do to run my app in the emulator.

You may have to reinstall the API version as well. Simply run android from command line and make sure the API level you are using is listed as installed.

I did a quick search and this is what I've found.

If you're on 64-bit, you may not be having the ia32-libs package installed. try installing the package and see if that works.

If it doesn't, try giving the files in the Tools directory in the Android SDK folder, execute permissions (Given that they don't have these permissions already)

Android SDK does have some requirements on the Ubuntu 64-bit base:


sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libstdc++6:i386


sudo apt-get install zlib1g:i386
