and bash says it cannot find the command. When I type ls I can see android.
Also am I obliged to use command line. Why Eclipse does only show a button for running SDK Manager which is not used often instead of AVD Manager ?
Eclipse -> Windows -> AVD Manager, You can make note of the button.
Eclipse shows both buttons (SDK and AVD Manager)
Am using -Eclipse SDK Version: 3.7.0
If you don’t want to use Eclipse this will fire it up.
Under tools folder write the following:
Today Eclipse has been replaced with Android Studio in the SDK bundle.
Android Studio for Mac installs the SDK in a subfolder in the user’s Library folder, so the full command line to launch the AVD becomes:
On newer versions of Android Studio, this should be done by running the
avdmanager binary located on
tools/bin/ (relative to the SDK root directory):
The same applies to the SDK Manager:
avdmanager used only for create/move/remove avds.
GUI can be used only in Android Studio (I think GUI is a part of Idea plugin, not an independent app like before in Eclipse)
For run emulator from console use this:
For list available AVDs:
For run emulator:
