I just downloaded the adt bundle.As per the instructions on the android site , it just says that double click on the eclipse icon and the IDE should start right away. But when I do so it searches for an application to run it . I even used wine to run it but it also failed. Now when i try to run it from the terminal , the following error pops up:

bash: ./eclipse: Permission denied

So , can anyone please help me out on this one?

  • Did you give the executable permission for eclipse binary file? – Sudheer Nov 10 '14 at 7:25
  • Tried doing that , but it is getting un-ticked automatically – sagar_ayi Nov 10 '14 at 8:38
  • I guess that are missing some environment variable. Try this link, maybe it could be useful. – Lety Nov 10 '14 at 12:27

    Actually got it to work. The error was solved by starting the adt bundle from the desktop i.e. pasting the extracted folder in desktop – sagar_ayi Nov 10 '14 at 12:47
  • But now there is a problem with the sdk manager – sagar_ayi Nov 10 '14 at 12:47

The drive in which I had pasted the ADT bundle was formatted in NTFS format so for the file to work , I had to use it from the drive which was formatted in ext4 format i.e. the home directory
