Debugging options unavailable in Eclipse after ADT reinstall

In an attempt to fix an apparent problem with Eclipse no longer automatically building my project, I re-installed the Android Developer Toolkit (v15) via Eclipse.

After this, everything seems to be working (breakpoints, etc.), except that the stop button in the debug perspective is always disabled, including the “resume”, “suspend”, “terminate” and “disconnect” buttons in the toolbar.

  • Android 5.0 Lollipop - Nexus 10 restarting and USB Debugging not detected?
  • What is the difference between Android 4.4W (API20) and Android L (API20, L Preview) in the SDK Manager?

  • How to set the app icon as the notification icon in the notification drawer
  • Detecting the scrolling direction in the adapter (up/down)
  • enter image description here

    Furthermore, breakpoints aren’t acknowledged, and in the popup that appears when I change code while the debug session is in progress, I no longer have a “terminate” option, only “disconnect”.

    Has anyone else encountered this? I am using a T-Mobile G2 as my device.

    EDIT: I have now fully re-installed Eclipse & ADT on a fresh machine and the ‘stop’ option is still missing. I wonder if this was removed in v15?

    I solved this problem resetting the debug perspective at default: right-click the debug perspective button, select “Reset” and confirm.

    After that my “Terminate” button was again enabled.

    Have you tried rebooting Eclipse? I was JUST dealing with this same issue until I just restarted it. I figure YOU know this by now, but in case someone else is in my shoes reading this post… 🙂

    I have an odd variation on this.

    After workspace corruption required me to rebuild a new workspace, the terminate button is only active when the Debug pane’s FIRST line (my-app-name [Android Application]) is selected.

    NOTE: Debugging on Genymotion emulator, not with Eclipse ADT’s built-in device emulator.

    This never was an issue before; previously it was either automatically selecting that line, or it wasn’t requiring it to be selected. Not sure which.

    @Gavagai’s solution (Reset Debug perspective) doesn’t solve it.

    So the work-around is to manually select that FIRST line in Debug pane.
