 I have a widgett that supports for many languages, but if the user change
the language in Settings, my widget don't update.. Only works, if I close it
and open again, or rebook the handset..
Someone have any suggestion for me to solve this?



Update language in Widget

I suspect that there is no automatic answer.

Android applications can find out about language changes via
onConfigurationChanged() (in Activity or Service) or the
ACTION_CONFIGURATION_CHANGED broadcast Intent. That Intent, though, must
be registered via registerReceiver() from a running component, making it
less than useful. Since you (hopefully) do not have a Service running
all the time in support of the app widget, the app widget itself cannot
use any of these.

You might wish to file a feature request on  http://b.android.com  -- I
would think that app widgets should be notified of configuration
changes, somehow, to handle your situation.

Beyond that, you could add a "refresh" button to the widget, or
otherwise allow them to tap something that, among other things, will
pick up the new language.

And, if you are lucky, somebody else will have a better idea...

2. Problem with the new SDK r08 on linux

Hello Guys,

I have downloaded the new release of SDK: r08 and wanting to get run
on my vmware-image: ubuntu 10.10 x64.

My Problem is now, that I can not execute some binares, for example in
the new folder: "platform-tools/adb" or "/tools/emulator".

Bash always says: "bash: ./adb: No such file or directory"

even though ./adb exists?!

Some other executables like "/tools/android" or "/tools/ddms" are
working fine...

Does anybody have the same problem?

Do I perhaps need to install a special libary to get this executable
