Error Opening Eclipse after ADT plug-in

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi there,

I've installed Android Development Tools (ADT) plug-in for Eclipse for building applications of android platform. Unfortunately, after installation, following error message pop-ups during the Eclipse start-up.

[2012-02-13 20:13:50 – adb] /home/michael/android-sdks/platform-tools/adb: error while loading shared libraries: libncurses.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[2012-02-13 20:13:50 – adb] 'adb version' failed!
/home/michael/android-sdks/platform-tools/adb: error while loading shared libraries: libncurses.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[2012-02-13 20:13:50 – adb] Failed to parse the output of 'adb version'

I'm not getting through to overcome this error message and unable to trace the application bug. Has anybody else has also encountered a similar situation.

Any kind of guidance will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hello Jeff,

To resolve the error that you are getting, try using the following workarounds:

Workaround 1:

  • First, you will need to make sure that you have included the library that has been specified in the error message. If that does not resolve the issue, you can try the next workaround.

Workaround 2:

  • You will need to open the Terminal, and then you will type su3.
  • After that you will have to enter a password,
  • And then type yum install libncurses.so.5
  • After you have done you should not get the error again.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Carl
