Unity style/VrActivityTheme not found in AndroidManifest.xml bug?!?

1 min read

If you run into the obscure and painful problem that Unity tells you the “style/VrActivityTheme not found in AndroidManifest.xml” then fear not.  You do not need to spent half a day trying to track down the problem.  At some point you probably (temporarily) added Google’s DayDream as a supported VR Device in the Unity Player Settings, then removed it. Unfortunately, Unity didn’t fully clear up all the dependencies on DayDream, so it assumes that it still needs this VrActivityTheme (https://developers.google.com/vr/reference/vr-manifest) .  It doesn’t.  The simplest solution? Just add support for DayDream back into your player settings (that’s not a bad thing), Unity will correctly resolve the dependencies, and it will build and run once more. Sigh.

Would you like to beta test EyeSkills* or just follow what we are doing?
