[Error: Failed to find 'ANDROID_HOME' environment variable. Try setting setting it manually.

ERROR building one of the platforms: Error: /home/tnt/hello12/platforms/android/cordova/build: Command failed with exit code 2

I put this code

export ANDROID_PLATFORM_TOOLS="$HOME/android/sdk/platform-tools"
export PATH="$ANDROID_HOME:$ANDROID_PLATFORM_TOOLS:$PATH"
export JAVA_HOME="/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64"
export ANT_HOME="/usr/share/ant"
export PATH="$ANT_HOME/bin:$PATH"
export ANDROID_HOME="/home/tnt/android/sdk/tools"


on my

/home/tnt/.bash_profile
/home/tnt/.bashrc
/home/tnt/.profile
/root/.bash_profile
/root/.bashrc
/root/.profile


but it wont works

Answer

I don't think its necessary to add everything into path.Just add the JAVA_HOME , ANDROID_HOME and ANT_HOME to path and point out the corresponding bin directory as:

For android studio

add this into your ~/.bashrc file:

1.export ANDROID_HOME=/path/to/android/studio
2.export PATH=$PATH:$ANDROID_HOME/bin

you can do the same for Ant.

For java jdk

add this into your /etc/profile file:

1.JAVA_HOME=/path/to/jdk
2.JRE_HOME=$JAVA_HOME/jre
3.PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin:$JRE_HOME/bin
4.export JAVA_HOME
5.export JRE_HOME
6.export PATH

Now in your terminal, type echo $PATH and make sure all the environment variables are added to the PATH!
