    I'm running Linux (Ubuntu) and I've just installed the Android Dev tools (following the Android's installation guide). When I start a new Android project in Eclipse, I get a "Thanks for using Android SDK" pop-up (above), however, the buttons don't respond and I can't seem to exit out, and I can't start the new project until it does..

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem?? :confused:
    Any help would be awesome.

    Also, I am being prompted to specify an SDK target (not sure what that would be exactly) but the option is grayed out and I'm not able to browse for one..

    Which version of Ubuntu/Eclipse are you on?
    There was one recently where button click did not work in Eclipse but keyboard shortcuts did.
    Does the rest of Eclipse work fine?

    Ubuntu: 10.10 (maverick) (64-bit system)
    Eclipse: Helios (release 3.6.2)
    Yea, the rest of Eclipse seems to work fine up until that point.
    The pop-up is no longer appearing, but the target issue remains.

    I know this is a dumb question, but did you install any of the android sdk's? That target automatically populates with all the sdks I downloaded.

    You did'nt install it correctly look at this
    ADT Plugin for Eclipse | Android Developers

    this is for the sdk target you need the ADT plugin

    aha... fixed it! I had to go to Windows>Preferences>Android to add the Android SDK directory.

    Thanks everyone!

    Oh ok, one last issue.. So I chose a sample Android project from within the ADT directory, clicked finish, but as soon as it is imported, I get this error in the Console display:
    Code (Text):
    1. [2011-04-01 08:48:46 - com.android.ide.eclipse.adt.internal.project.AndroidManifestHelper] Unable to read /home/adam/android-sdk-linux_x86/samples/android-8/AndroidManifest.xml: java.io.FileNotFoundException: /home/adam/android-sdk-linux_x86/samples/android-8/AndroidManifest.xml (No such file or directory)
    I looked it up myself, and the file AndroidManifest.xml exists in the android-8/WiktionarySimple directory, but not in the android-8 directory itself. Where is this path/to/AndroidManifest.xml being specified so I can alter it?
