    I'm trying to develop on Google Glass, and I followed in advice on this StackOverflow question to set up the project:

    Before I try to modify the AndroidManifest.xml, I can successfully click Build and Run and the app starts on the Glass. I needed to modify the manifest to add the necessary voice command intents:

    Code (csharp):
    2. <activity android:launchMode="singleTask" android:label="@string/app_name" android:configChanges="fontScale|keyboard|keyboardHidden|locale|mnc|mcc|navigation|orientation|screenLayout|screenSize|smallestScreenSize|uiMode|touchscreen" android:screenOrientation="landscape" android:name="com.equipcodes.unity1.UnityPlayerProxyActivity">
    3.       <intent-filter>
    4.         <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
    5.         <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
    6.       </intent-filter>
    7.      <intent-filter>
    8.         <action android:name="" />
    9.       </intent-filter>
    10.      <meta-data android:name="" android:resource="@xml/my_voice_trigger" />
    11.     </activity>
    I made modifications to the AndroidManifest generated in the export from the build, and then copied the file back into Assets/Plugins/Android/

    I can then export to eclipse and run fine, but when I try to just "Build and Run" from the build menu, I get the following error:

    Code (csharp):
    1. Unable to find unity activity in manifest. You need to make sure orientation attribut is set to landscape manually. UnityEditor.HostView:OnGUI()
    There's something about clicking build and run that's different from exporting and then running from eclipse.

    That should not be an error - just a warning. Basically it's telling you that because you are not using the standard unity activities the editor doesn't know what manifest attributes to patch so you have t make sure they are correctly specified in your AndroidManifest.xml file. For instance if you were to select portrait as the orientation in the editor your application would still load in landscape mode because that is what you have specified in your custom manifest.

    Thanks,but I have a crash, and I decided that warning and socket errors was the reason of it
