Android - cannot run sketches

edited February 2016 in Android Mode


I have been trying to get android running in processing mode but no luck so far. I have been at it almost all day so I decided to cry for help.

I am using OS X, processing 3.02 and android 5.11

I followed the instruction here and here and never got it to work.

I ran the same code straight in my phone using APDE (app) and also managed to run apps using android studio. Just processing is not a go.

I get a "Error from inside the Android tools, check console" followed by a massive list of errors (see following), maybe is also worth mentioning that my device is not recognised by processing (nothing is listed under "Select Device").

Problem inside Devices.list() Cannot run program "adb": error=13, Permission denied at java.lang.ProcessBuilder.start( at java.lang.Runtime.exec( at java.lang.Runtime.exec( at at at at at at at$ at java.util.TimerThread.mainLoop( at Caused by: error=13, Permission denied at java.lang.UNIXProcess.forkAndExec(Native Method) at java.lang.UNIXProcess.( at java.lang.ProcessImpl.start( at java.lang.ProcessBuilder.start( ... 11 more

Maybe someone here knows what might be wrong? Thank you for your help



  • @_cv=== is your phone in debug mode???

  • yes! I did activate USB debugging.

  • @c_v=== in order to be sure about the phone && phone connection launch the monitor tool from the SDK; no need to start processing. You can see there wether your device is listed.

  • Thank you for this. In the end whatever I did I couldn't make it run. I managed to make it work by copying an android mode folder straight from another computer into mine.

    go figure....
