Android AVD won’t start

Eclipse Kepler Debian 7.6 Android SDK R23.0.2 ( ~/android/tools/android )

After configuring an AVD thru the command line

~/android/tools/android avd

When I try to start it, the programme exits providing the log bellow and the AVD is not launched.

Of course it doesn’t work better inside the Eclipse IDE and seems not to be invoked at all (no log in the console).

Any idea ?

I had the same problem, in my case some packages were missing. I followed the official website steps for Ubuntu troubleshooting and fixed the issue.
