 Hi Ram,

I tried the following steps in installing Eclipse in Ubuntu

1) Downloaded classic version of Eclipse
2) Then added the ADT plugin as given in the link 
3) Then downloaded Android Eclair package
4) Then ran the "android" tool in the tools folder of eclair.
5) Have saved the network settings in it.(Check the force.... option
provided in it)
6) And installed all packages.

If still network connection is a problem, pls check the below

If the network connection itself is a problem. Check the network proxy
settings value. (System -> Preferences -> Network Proxy).
Even if it doesn't help check the software sources server name. Go to System
-> Administration -> Software Sources and choose other in the Download from
Tab. And select the option choose best server. Once it has chosen best
server set it.
Also if you have logged in for the first time, after saving the settings log
out and try log in again.(It helped us here..)

Hope this solves your problem.

Have you tried to update eclipse through Help -> Check For Updates,
before installing ADT?

I had the same problem but finally made it.

Go to "Help/Install New Software..."

Add to the update sites 
list (strange it's not installed by default on ubuntu)

Restart eclipse

Go back to "Help/Install New Software..." and install the Android ADT
as explained on the android website.

 I had the same problem using Karmic.
I followed Vineus's directions and works perfectly.

2. Error inserting into table CalendarEvents

Dear all,

I'm trying to add an event to the calendar and it works very well. But
if I try to add a remeinder with an alert I receive the following
error message:

08-04 11:24:56.193: ERROR/DatabaseUtils(2094): Error inserting state=0

The code of the methode to insert the remeinder is:

final ContentResolver cr = this.getContentResolver();

if(newEvent != null)
                long id = Long.parseLong(newEvent.getLastPathSegment());
                long reminderMinutes = 10;
                int starttime = (int) startdate;

                ContentValues values = new ContentValues();
                values.put("event_id", id);
                values.put("method", 1);
                values.put("minutes", reminderMinutes);
                cr.insert(Uri.parse("content://calendar/reminders"), values);

                values = new ContentValues();
                values.put("event_id", id );
                values.put("begin", starttime);
                values.put("end", starttime+2);
                values.put("alarmTime", starttime);
                values.put("state", 0);
                values.put("minutes", reminderMinutes);

Thanks in advance for your help.

Best regards,
