Are you starting Android Virtual machine from within eclipse or directly ?

If you are running it from eclipse then before starting eclipse just make sure to run the below command:

sudo export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0

Now start the eclipse and try running AVD from it. I hope this helps. It solved this issue at my end when I faced the similar problem.

  • That haven't worked. I'm still getting the posted error message. Commented Jun 10, 2014 at 17:52
  • Oh I see. Many times this error arises because of root issues. In my case, I installed eclipse as root but AVD was being configured for normal user. Well there may be several reasons for your problem. I hope this google search can help bit.ly/1mG8Ris Commented Jun 11, 2014 at 7:06
