I was not paying attention. I did not find the script in 
packaging/android and assumed I should use the "normal" Now 
that you mentioned it, I did a specific search and found it in the 
subsurface/scripts folder. I copied the script over to packaging/android 
and ran it. At the moment Internet-speed at the university is 
prohibitively slow to execute the script: cannot connect to servers, 
especially that in Brazil. Will try later today from home.

Thanks so much for this. I appreciate this very much.

Kind regards,
