Manifest merger failed (Android)


#1

Hi all,

I just updated media file picker plugin https://github.com/jibon57/nativescript-mediafilepicker and here is the problem I get when I try to run the app(Android):

* What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ':app:processDebugManifest'.
> Manifest merger failed : Attribute meta-data#android.support.FILE_PROVIDER_PATHS@resource value=(@xml/provider_paths) from [:nativescript_camera:] AndroidManifest.xml:19:17-55
        is also present at [:MultiTypeFilePicker-release:] AndroidManifest.xml:46:17-51 value=(@xml/file_paths).
        Suggestion: add 'tools:replace="android:resource"' to <meta-data> element at AndroidManifest.xml to override.

Thanks for you help

Thanks for prompt reply, I updated mediafilepicker plugin to its latest version. Here are more details regarding the problem: https://github.com/jibon57/nativescript-mediafilepicker/issues/26 and https://github.com/jibon57/nativescript-mediafilepicker/issues/30, I tried everything and nothing worked. in few cases, my iMac just restarted while building the app.
