      11:46:08 [android] Could not create Android emulator: Failed to parse AVD config file

      I checked source code of plugin, and the only place where '/tmp' directory is being set is at

      I investigated this further by creating simple jar, which was then ran in 'execute shell' build step..

      public class Main {
          public static void main(String[] args) {
              System.out.println("home: " + System.getenv("HOME"));
              System.out.println("username: " + System.getProperty("user.name"));

      and here is the output:

      12:39:13 home: null
      12:39:13 username: jenkins

      When I execute this jar directly from shell over ssh it works properly.

      I have no clue why is it working that way, but have you considered using EnvVars class? It stores all environment variables available on machine, including those injected by plugins / slaves.
