java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: android.support.v4.app.Watson.mFragments

I'm trying to implement ActionBarSherlock swipe menu as I like how this animation slides over the slide menu. Unfortunately I keep getting this error and haven't been able to solve it.

This guy is getting the same error but none of the answers on this solves my problem. Android: java.land.NoSuchFieldError after update to SDK 23

Here is my Gradle file.

buildscript {
    repositories {
        maven { url 'https://maven.fabric.io/public' }

    dependencies {
        classpath 'io.fabric.tools:gradle:1.+'

            proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'

I was able to solve the problem by removing the facebook sdk from my gradle file. Since i need the facebook sdk, i was able to get around this by making MainActivity just extend FragmentActivity instead of SlidingFragmentActivty. I made this inner class inside of MainActivty to extend SlidingActivity, that way i can still use the methods i need.

private class SlidingMenuClass extends SlidingActivity {
        private SlidingMenu sm;

        public SlidingMenuClass(Context ctx){
            sm = new SlidingMenu(ctx);

        public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

            sm = getSlidingMenu();
            sm.attachToActivity(this, SlidingMenu.SLIDING_CONTENT);

        public boolean onOptionsItemSelected(MenuItem item) {
            switch (item.getItemId()) {
                case android.R.id.home:
                    return true;
            return super.onOptionsItemSelected(item);
