I want to set up a PC as an Android development workstation targetting the Firefly-RK3399.  I want to use it to develop apps for the Firefly and to rebuild the OS images on the Firefly.  On this web page
http://en.t-firefly.com/doc/product/info/id/519.html
it reccomends using Ubuntu 12.04.

Is this really correct? 12.04 is a year and a half past its end-of-life date!

What version is used by the developers in the Firefly team?

You can download ubuntu16.04 or higher version.
But it might be something wrong when you complie SDK .
Just solve the problem following the result of the SDK report.

I started by installing the latest LTS that Google use, 18.04, but got compiler errors when building Android.  I wiped everything and installed 12.04 (according to Firefly recommendations), but now I cannot even locate adb!

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-cache search android-tools-adb
{no output}
$

I am considering downloading the latest Android Studio from
https://developer.android.com/studio/
but I wonder if that is compatible with such an old Ubuntu installation (12.04)?

Ideally I want to setup a system that matches what works best for the Firefly developers.  Is there a document that specifies this, please?

Thanks.

I have now insralled Ubuntu 14.04, and adb is available for that.

What version of Ubuntu is used by the Firefly-RK3399 developers?  I want to sen
t up my development workstation as close as possible to those of the Firefly developers.  I keep asking this question, but I'm not getting the answer.
Thanks,
