Update : i figured it out.

I am using Sdk version 27.0.3
unity is unity5.6
java jdk is 1.8_1

so what was the problem? i spent 12 hours and 4 hours trying to ask mr.google to help me out. The answer was so simple. SO Simple.

just delete unity5Projects\NUP\Assets\FacebookSDK\Plugins\Android

“lib” folder.

so setps:

install sdk 27.0.3 only.
install jdk 1.8
install facebook sdk 7.15.1
delete that pathetic lib file from facebook sdk/plugins/android/

My main error was "

No resource found that matches the given name '@style/Theme.AppCompat.NoActionBar …etc


Thats it?? I wasted 16 hours of my life on this. Pathetic from Facebook and unity.

If you do as i answered before you end up with your app crashing everytime on any android device. So this is the updated answer on what i did that saved me from this misery.

install android sdk 27.0.3 – My unity is unity5.6-- java jdk is 1.8_1 (jdk same as everybody)

& facebook sdk 7.15.1.
So the problem is that facebook’s latest sdk doesnt have all the files necessary to complete a successful android build. Some files are missing.

go download facebook sdk 7.9.0. unzip it. open unity . import this 7.9.0 sdk.
deselect everything.

Bottomline: Just select the files that are missing from your main(7.15.1) sdk.

first deselect everything and then…
In facebooksdk–>plugins–> android–>libs. SELECT THE MISSING FILES ONLY. i guess one was vectorsomething, other was appcomsomething, animated-vector-drawsomething

Dont duplicate just see which ones are missing from 7.15.1 and import only those files from 7.9.0 into 7.15.1.

you’ll end up with a total of 19 files(in mycase there are only 19) in your “lib”(i hate this folder so much).

thats it. Youre finally good to go.Finally.
