Android Build Failed

Hi,

I’m new to ionic and it’s very interesting to know more about it.
But I have a problem. When I try to execute ionic build android command it comes to build failed result. The detail message is like this:
:CordovaLib:processDebugResources FAILED

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

  • What went wrong:
    Execution failed for task ‘:CordovaLib:processDebugResources’.

com.android.ide.common.internal.LoggedErrorException: Failed to run command:

Command failed with exit code 1
You may not have the required environment or OS to build this project

And when i try to start my android emulator, it wont show up.

please help me to fix this issue.

thank all

Depends on your platform, but when I had this issue for just plain “ionic platform build” (on Windows machine), I just had to run:
npm update -g ionic cordova (and bower, since I am using it as well)
After I ran this command, I simply ran:
ionic platform rm android
ionic platform add android
ionic build android

worked like a charm! You may need to run CMD prompt as administrator if you dont have permissions.

Hi newkidd,

thanks for your insight, but unfortunately after I try your step the same error still occur.
This is my ionic information

Hi again,

I finally found a solution, the problem was that I didn’t have intalled some necessary libraries.
I fixed it by installing the following libraries:

  • lib32stdc++6
  • lib32z1

I’m using elementaryOS Freya, a Linux distribution.
I installed them via linux terminal:

  • sudo apt-get install lib32stdc++6
  • sudo apt-get install lib32z1

Source: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/27589844/android-studio-1-0-2-not-building-appmergedebugresources-error

I hope this works for you too.

Hi Dellos7,

thank you for sharing, unfortunately when I try to run your suggestion mac cannot support command apt-get. It said that:
apt-get: command not found

then I try to run using this:
brew install lib32stdc++6
Error: No available formula for lib32stdc++6
==> Searching formulae…
==> Searching taps…

brew install lib32z1
Error: No available formula for lib32z1
==> Searching formulae…
==> Searching taps…

I still try to find out what happen to my developing environment for android.

As you may have already found, this error can be visible due to many reasons. Hence you need to find actual reason behind the error.

Instead of issuing just;

ionic build android

Navigate to platform android folder; normally located in below path

cd [your_project_folder]\platform\android

And issue below command;

gradlew.bat --info build clean

This will list the actual issue, rectify that and redo the build.

Hope this is helpful!

I struggled with this problem for days! Thank you so much. Works wonderfully.

In my case, the problem was caused by some files inside my project which had non-UTF8 characters.

I had some pictures named like “instalación.jpg” (the “ó” latin character was causing the issue).

After replacing the names of the files, the build was OK.

Thanks It worked for me on Ubuntu.

Thanks worked for me on Travis (ubuntu 14.04)

I’ve got a similar issue.
To find a workaround, I’ve created a new blank project.
The compilation and emulation was good.
I figure out there were a problem in my www folder.
After some multiples test, one of my picture got that name : 'Clément.png".
Removing the accent to get ‘Clement.png’ just fixed my problem…
A lot of pain.
