Error inflating class com.facebook.widget.LoginButton with Facebook SDK 4.0.1

I know this is a very common question, btu I have read through all the stack overflow questions without finding an answer.

I’m trying to integrate the Facebook Login Button using Facebook SDK 4.0.1 added through Gradle, but I get the following error.

  java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to start activity ComponentInfo{se.speedle.android/com.bryderi.speedle.android.activity.MainActivity}: android.view.InflateException: Binary XML file line #26: Error inflating class com.facebook.widget.LoginButton

I can see the LoginButton class in Android Studio, so it kind of works

Here’s my build.gradle dependencies

dependencies {
aspects 'org.robobinding:robobinding:0.8.9'
compile 'org.springframework.android:spring-android-rest-template:2.0.0.M1'
compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:21.0.3'
compile 'com.android.support:support-v4:21.0.3'
compile 'com.android.support:support-v13:21.0.3'
compile 'com.android.support:recyclerview-v7:21.0.3'
compile 'com.fasterxml.jackson.core:jackson-databind:2.3.2'
compile 'com.jakewharton:butterknife:6.1.0'
compile 'com.facebook.android:facebook-android-sdk:4.0.1'
compile 'me.alexrs:recyclerview-renderers:1.0.3'
compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services:6.5.87'
}

Here’s my layout

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:facebook="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:gravity="center_horizontal"
android:orientation="vertical"
android:padding="20dp" >
<com.facebook.widget.LoginButton
android:id="@+id/connectWithFbButton"
style="@style/com_facebook_loginview_default_style"
android:layout_width="wrap_content"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"
android:layout_centerInParent="true"
android:layout_gravity="center_horizontal"
android:text=" connect_with_facebook"/>
</LinearLayout>

And the relevant parts of my activity

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
FacebookSdk.sdkInitialize(getApplicationContext());
callbackManager = CallbackManager.Factory.create();
setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
// Set a Toolbar to replace the ActionBar.
Toolbar toolbar = (Toolbar) findViewById(R.id.toolbar);
setSupportActionBar(toolbar);
// Find our drawer view
dlDrawer = (FragmentNavigationDrawer) findViewById(R.id.drawer_layout);
// Setup drawer view
dlDrawer.setupDrawerConfiguration((ListView) findViewById(R.id.lvDrawer), toolbar,
R.layout.drawer_nav_item, R.id.flContent);
// Add nav items
dlDrawer.addNavItem("Home", "First Fragment", ClassifiedsFragment.class);
dlDrawer.addNavItem("Favourites", "Favourites", ClassifiedsFragment.class);
dlDrawer.addNavItem("My Items", "Items", ClassifiedsFragment.class);
dlDrawer.addNavItem("Settings", "Settings", ClassifiedsFragment.class);
//dlDrawer.addNavItem("Second", "Second Fragment", SecondFragment.class);
//dlDrawer.addNavItem("Third", "Third Fragment", ThirdFragment.class);
// Select default
if (savedInstanceState == null) {
dlDrawer.selectDrawerItem(0);
}
}
