I installed a JDK and then an Android SDK on my Ubuntu 12.04, 32-bit machine (2 GB DDR3 memory). The aim is to have an Android emulator. I created some Android Virtual Devices, one of which I named 'Andreud'. When I type in the command
where 'Andreud' is the name of the Android Virtual Device I created. A blank window with a black backdrop shows up on which "android" word is visible, in its trademark font. This, I suppose, is the welcome screen. The home screen, icons, etc. don't show up. Also, there are buttons for volume control and also the power on button, all of which are enabled. Even the D-pad buttons which has 4 navigation buttons left, right, top, bottom, and a central button are enabled. There are other important buttons, home button, menu button which are disabled. It just shows a welcome screen and for minutes on end and goes blank again.
I would like (barest minimum) one of my Android Virtual Devices to work.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
