Problem connecting to Android emulator (IDEA 9)


I am trying to start some Android development and am having problems with the integration in IDEA. I can build packages and upload them manually to the emulator, but this doesn't allow me any sort of debugging with Idea. I have followed the tutorials to set up the emulator image and run configuatio in Idea. Idea will launch the emulator but never connects to it it seems:

Waiting for device.
/home/mkowske/Source/android-sdk-linux_x86/tools/emulator -avd Avd-3.0 -netspeed full -netdelay none

The emulator is then running (after some time of booting), but there is nothing listed in the Idea "Android Logcat" tool window. I have to use adb commands to upload my package. This is Android v3.0 emulator image and I am using IntelliJ Idea 9.0.4., but fwiw I did try virtual devices of versions 2.1 and 2.2 and had no luck there either. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

I used to use 9.0.4 for Android development, but once Android changed up their platform tools folder it stopped working.  It does work with IntelliJ 10.x so you probably need to upgrade.

Indeed I downloaded 10.5 CE to try it out and had no problems. Time to upgrade I guess. Thanks.
