Hello! I am trying to setup react native to work on an android emulator.
I am using Ubuntu 18.04.
I am getting this error message when i try to use “react-native run-android”:
BUILD FAILED in 1m 21s
28 actionable tasks: 28 executed
Could not install the app on the device, read the error above for details.
Make sure you have an Android emulator running or a device connected and have
set up your Android development environment:
Command failed: ./gradlew installDebug

Furthermore, it says:
A problem was found with the configuration of task ‘:app:installDebug’.
File ‘/home/william/Android/platform-tools/adb’ specified for property ‘adbExe’ does not exist.
I found an answer that said to replace ‘/’ with ‘’ in my settings.gradle in my react native project. The only thing in that is file however is:
rootProject.name = ‘AwesomeProject’
