I’m not sure which update exactly broke it, but recently I got this when trying to launch the Android Emulator from the CLI:
$ emulator -list-avds Nexus_5X_API_25 $ emulator -avd Nexus_5X_API_25 :ERROR:./android/qt/qt_setup.cpp:28:Qt library not found at ../emulator/lib64/qt/lib Could not launch '../emulator/qemu/darwin-x86_64/qemu-system-i386': No such file or directory
Apparently there’s some relative path linking happening, which of course fails when running the
emulator command from a project directory.
The fix is to run the
emulator command from the directory in which it resides. Some command combinations later, this is the result (with
Nexus_5X_API_25 being the name of the created virtual device):
cd $(dirname $(which emulator)) && ./emulator -avd Nexus_5X_API_25
UPDATE 2017-11-28: As mentioned by Piotr in the comments below, another way to fix it, is to include the path of the
emulator binary in your
$PATH environment variable.
If installed correctly, you will most likely find some references
to $ANDROID_HOME in your
.bash_profile. Below that block, add this line to it:
