AAPT process not ready to receive commands while trying to compile an android app for React Native


#1

“AAPT process not ready to receive commands”
Pretty much just created a new react native project with: react-native init TodoList
And then, after launching an android emulator:
react-native run-android
Yet I receive the error above which looks like a gradle error. Re-running a few times still results in the same error.
Here’s the full trace
nicky@nicky:~/interesting_projects/TodoList$ react-native run-android
Scanning folders for symlinks in /home/nicky/interesting_projects/TodoList/node_modules (13ms)
JS server already running.
Building and installing the app on the device (cd android && ./gradlew installDebug)…
Incremental java compilation is an incubating feature.

This is probably the important message:

AAPT err(Facade for 954787767): /home/nicky/Android/Sdk/build-tools/23.0.1/aapt: error while loading shared libraries: libz.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

It looks like it’s failing trying to link libz, which it claims is not available. Is this a linux machine? It’s possible it’s not installed. For instance, on Ubuntu this would be sudo apt-get install zlib1g. “libz” is often in packages called “zlib”.
