Screens beeing always too small :) I am trying to use a skin without any
I got it here : 

I am copying the BILGICIFTLIGI-LAYOUT-P folder inside
D:\android\tools\lib\images\skins (please note my system is on D:\...)

When running the emulator, I get such message :
[2009-04-29 13:30:30 - Emulator] emulator: ERROR: could not find directory
for skin 'BILGICIFTLIGI-LAYOUT-P', please use a different name

I tried using the -skindir option and provided the full path :
-skindir "d:\Android\Tools\lib\images\skins" -skin "BILGICIFTLIGI-LAYOUT-P"
...with no success.

If I use -skin HVGA, then it works....

I have tried on 2 different machines and I get the same result.
I also tried renaming BILGICIFTLIGI-LAYOUT-P into NOKBD (short name) with no
more success.
I have btw first tried -skin BILGICIFTLIGI-LAYOUT-P (no ") with no success.

Anyone would have a hint ?

this is not going to work for SDK 1.5
try copying your skin folder to SDK_HOME\platforms\android-1.5\skins,
SDK_HOME\platforms\android-1.1\skins, depending upon your AVD target.

1. Questions about getConfiguration

Hi you all Android developers here,

I'm confused about whether to use the getConfiguration in
Settings.System even its definition actually seems only get the font
scale instead of the whole config, or to use the getConfiguration in
ActivityManagerNative whose definition seems actually return the whole
config but belongs to the internal APIs which as far as I know is
still not officially supported.
Or maybe I misunderstood either one of these 2 definitions?

Thanks a lot to any possible thoughts and answers!!!


2. downloadable application packaging

I have an app which displays certain image files that I "pre-package"
into my res/drawable folder.  Ideally, I want users to be able to buy
new update-packs for this app (which would contain image files).
What is the best / easiest / standardized way to do this. ?
