I have an Acer Travelmate 5735Z, Ubuntu 12.04 and trying to get android SDK running.

When I run ./tools/emulator -avd MYAVD -verbose in the SDK directory, the emulator displays no error messages (or warnings), but no GUI appears!

I have tried several things, I am desperate by now. Grateful for any suggestion.

  • MAke sure that MYAVD is the full path to your avd.

You do not need install packages any more!

In directory tools, there are many types of emulator, while my computer works with emulator64-arm! My system is Linux Mint 16 amd64! Good luck!

./emulator64-arm @yxphone -sdcard yxsd -scale 0.8
  • yo I heard linux mint is taboo here. sorry pal. May 21, 2016 at 1:17
