1. Check whether your Ubuntu is running 32bit or 64 bit OS. In terminal window, type in

                     uname –m
        

  • If the response is i686, you have a 32-bit version of Linux.
  • If the response is x86_64, you have a 64-bit version of Linux.


2. Download Android Developer Tool and extract anywhere you want and rename it with no space.

           /Home/ADT

3. Download Java Runtime Environment (JRE) extract inside eclipse directory of your Android Developer Tool and rename it to jre.

          /Home/ADT/eclipse/jre


If your are running Ubuntu with 64 bit system, it is required to install  lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0 to avoid this error: /home/username/ADT/sdk/platform-tools/aapt: error while loading shared libraries: libz.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

      Install ia32-libs via terminal : sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0 lib32stdc++6
