I'm following this tutorial to setup my Android environment

Currently I'm at this stage in the tutorial

roscd android_core
# Note: you may need to adjust the argument to the `--target` option based
# which Android API version you're using.

# You may have to kill gradle if it's already running.

android update project --path ./android_gingerbread_mr1/ --target android-17
android update project --path ./android_honeycomb_mr2/ --target android-17
cd android_gingerbread_mr1
../gradlew debug
cd ../android_honeycomb_mr2
../gradlew debug

When i do the first ../gradlew debug it throws java errors saying 'app manager' does not exist. The problem is I installed 'app manager' and can roscd to 'app_manager'


lucid@lucid-MacBookPro:~/android/android_core/android_gingerbread_mr1$ ../gradlew clean debug

It's not finding the app manager messages. These are compiled when you gradle rosjava messages. Possibly did you install the app_manager package after you gradled rosjava_messages?

If that is the case, you'll need to clean and rebuild rosjava_core, android_core and then android_apps. In some cases with these kinds of errors you also need to clean out your local maven repository as well (~/.m2) which is where the jar's go, but that shouldn't be necessary in this case.
