Android Tutorial Basic4Android for Linux (Ubuntu) - Installation Script

Hy everyone,

Here is a little script to install Basic4Android on Linux (realized and tested on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit )

To run this script:
1 - Edit B4A_Installer_en.sh with your favorite text editor
2 - replace the contents of variables ProgInstallB4A and UrlB4A ...
ProgInstallB4A=b4a-trial.exe
UrlB4A=http://www.basic4ppc.com/android/files/$ProgInstallB4A​
...by the name and the url for downloading full version program.
3 - run a terminal
4 - from the terminal run the script B4A_Installer_en.sh
5 - respond with 'y' ( yes) to all questions of installation process

except Java for Linux and Wine 1.6, all components are installed on $HOME/workspace_b4a. So simply delete directory to remove this installation.

There is no copyright, then you can modify this script.

Note for Erel : I think it's not very hard to do Basic4android fully compatible Linux.
It should :
- Adapt the code for Mono (few changes to do).
- Allow to execute scripts and bin included in Android SDK for Linux.
- Allow to execute java bin for linux.
I think it is worth to implement this solution. I would thrilled to participate (if you want).

Sorry for this very bad translation - Thanks to Google Translate ;-)

Best Regards.

File updated 15/11/2013: change the installation script, replacing installation of "windows6.1-KB976932-X86.exe" (too heavy) by adding command "WINEDLLOVERRIDES=gdiplus=n" in the launcher.

File updated 05/05/2014: change the installation script, included Java 1.7.0_55 and android-sdk_r22.6.1-linux

File updated 06/05/2014:Update installation script, few fixes in lib_Installer.sh and B4A_Installer_en.sh

I've updated the script to use latest versions of java and android sdk. In Lubuntu 14.04 (with wine 1.6.2) it finally works perfectly for me so I've not modified anything else in the script. Also I had already installed java in linux before, like this:

B4X:
sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk

During linux SDK installation I chose to install android-20 platform, minus source-code, docs and examples. When the installation finished, I opened the b4a IDE and configured the paths like this:
B4X:
javac.exe        C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_67\bin\javac.exe
android.jar      Z:\home\MYUSER\workspace_b4a\android-sdk-linux\platforms\android-20\android.jar

The device connected well via wifi (with a warning message). But on compilation it gave this error:
Error: Unable to access jarfile Z:\home\MYUSER\workspace_b4a\android-sdk-linux\tools\..\platform-tools\lib\dx.jar

That file is located under build-tools/lib, not platform-tools/lib. So I had to manually create a symlink (this is not in the script) since the paths where not the ones the b4a IDE is expecting:
B4X:
cd ~/workspace_b4a
ln -s ../build-tools/20.0.0/lib android-sdk-linux/platform-tools/lib

After that it now works beautifully!

Thank you zolive33 for your work, I still can't belive I have b4a IDE finally working in linux :)

EDIT 2014-09-20: added a readme.txt with relevant info

The problem referred to in my previous post still applies:
Java installed OK. However, I think that there is another problem afterwards:
2014-05-06 08:58:47 (521 KB/s) - ‘/home/john/workspace_b4a/temp/b4a-trial.exe’ saved [3815553/3815553]

rm: cannot remove ‘/dosdevices/c:/windows/temp/override-dll.reg’: No such file or directory

Also, there is no directory android-sdk-linux/platform-tools/lib/ in workspace_b4a.
PS I am using Ubuntu Trusty 64 bit with Wine 1.6.2 (provided by Ubuntu's Wine Dev team) & openjdk-7 package is installed.

Hi johnaaronrose, I'd recommend to you to move out the wine configuration folder and try again. I bet the problem is in there.
  1. Move the wine configuration folder, just in case configuration is wrong. (do you have many more windows programs installed?)
  2. Make sure winetricks is installed. and that it runs.
  3. Delete workspace_b4a/wine_b4a folder
B4X:
cd ~
mv ~/.wine ~/.wine-backup

sudo apt-get install winetricks
winetricks

rm -r workspace_b4a/wine_b4a

Start installation again. If you hadn't deleted the 'android-sdk-linux folder', you can skip that step and avoid spending half an hour. The same with java for linux, if you have it installed just press 0 on the question. You'll need to install java for windows though.


Also, there is no directory android-sdk-linux/platform-tools/lib/ in workspace_b4a.
That's the thing. After installation finished I had to create a symlink there pointing to android-sdk-linux/build-tools/20.0.0/lib because b4a searches for it there.

Thanks for the instructions. They worked OK. BTW dx.jar is in ~/workspace_b4a/android-sdk-linux/build-tools/20.0.0/lib. So code below doesn't work:
B4X:
cd ~/workspace_b4a
ln -s ../build-tools/20.0.0/lib android-sdk-linux/platform-tools/lib/

Thank you, I have tried this. The script installs the android-sdk for linux and B4A is looking for an exe file which is not included with this. I am getting the error aapt.exe error now and once I get that solved I'm sure the next will be ziplign.exe error. I have tried installing just the sdk for windws through wine, but it will not take. Any ideas??

If you can give me the exact version of 1) the Android API you are installing, 2) which java you have installed and 3) the system you are using, I'll try to replicate it and try to fix it.

for the last 2 things you can just give me the output of these 3 commands:
B4X:
uname -a
cat /etc/lsb-release
java -version

Currently I have API 21 installed and here is the output of the commands you requested:

Thank you for your assistance. I would really like to get B4A to compile in Ubuntu and finally get away from Windows.

I have both installed on my notebook, but it would be great to use this application only on Ubuntu, because Ubuntu is significantly faster and boots on my computer under 10 seconds..

I have installed all scripts over there and B4A won't start, it gives the following errors:

Good morning. First of all everyone should start using the new updated script B4LinuxInstall and abandon this thread, since the scripts in here are no longer supported.

In second place. I just made an annotated video demoing the installation B4A & B4J with the B4LinuxInstall script.

@doogal I've tested it using your setup and it works. Use the latest version just in case. And make sure you delete (or rename) the installation folder before attempting a new installation. (the folder by default is ~/workspace_b4)

@Fusseldieb try the new script. It also creates launchers for the installed programs. In your log you are using the default installation of wine. That is not the one the script prepares for B4A.

Oh thanks so much for answering me, I will try this tomorrow. I will make a clean install of Ubuntu too, to guarantee that this will be working 100% ;)
