This question already has an answer here:

I have been wanting to make the switch from Windows to Ubuntu for a while now and decided to do a test run by dual booting on my tower. I installed Ubuntu 13.04 as it was the latest version and had no issues with the set-up. Now that I have it installed I am having issues figuring things out.

A main thing that is bugging me is I tried to set up eclipse using the ADT package(http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html). When it runs if I minimize the window disappears and the icon is not on the sidebar.

Another thing is there seems to be a problem with the Software Centre. When I go to see the currently installed applications, it shows a white screen with an unanimated loading circle in the middle and the cursor turns to the loading cursor.

I guess my question would be is should I downgrade to Ubuntu 12.10 and do my set-up there or just wait for the next update.

Also taking your recommendations if you think I should choose another Linux distribution for Android development.

13.04 is still in development and will be unstable, so yes 12.10 or 12.04 LTS would be more functional. –  Chris Carter Feb 17 '13 at 10:52
    
Hm. I never installed Eclipse but... Sorry for the silly question. Is it possible to install Eclipse from a terminal? Certainly you will get some error messages there –  Melon Feb 17 '13 at 10:55
    
I dont think the issue is with Eclipse. I think it is a bug with 13.04. Chris I think I will downgrade and start again. If you want, make that an answer and I’ll accept it. –  RMDan Feb 17 '13 at 10:59

13.04 is still in development and will be unstable with some packages not yet supported so yes 12.10 or 12.04 LTS would be more functional.
