How to install Android Studio in Ubuntu
Written by: admin
I have to install Android Studio in Ubuntu 12.04 and I have used this link to download Android Studio.
Is there any easy way to install Studio in Ubuntu ?
I am familiar with Eclipse ADT.
Download the Linux SDK from the Android website.
Copy the folder to whereever you want to extract the contents.
Open a terminal there, and then run:
sudo apt-get install unzip sudo tar xvzf android-studio-ide-135.1641136-linux.zip cd android-studio-ide-135.1641136-linux ./studio.sh
JDK 1.7 is required for Studio 1.0 onwards:
- Download the ubuntu zip from the d.android.com and repeat the steps from above
- Download the jdk 1.7 by executing the following commands in terminal as mentioned webupd8:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer
- Open Android Studio and install the SDK tools.
- If your system has a 32 bit processor, use Platform Tools r23.0.1.
Refer to this bug for details.
Below are the steps to install Android Studio in Ubuntu system:
1. Install JDK 6 or later
First, install Oracle JDK 8 (although you could also choose OpenJDK but it has some UI/performance issues) using WebUpd8 PPA.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-set-default
To make sure, it’s installed successfully, open a terminal and type (you should get the version number of the jdk you’ve installed e.g javac 1.8.0_11)
2. Download and install Android Studio
Download the Android Studio package for Linux and extract it somewhere (e.g home directory).
Then type :
cd android-studio/bin ./studio.sh
3. Install SDK Platforms
You need to install some SDK before you jump into building android apps.
Click on Configure -> SDK Manager to open Android SDK Manager. Select the latest API (to test against target build, e.g API 19 (Android 4.4.2)) and some packages in Extras (Android Support Library and Android Support Repository). Then install the selected packages.
Run the following command on terminal.
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:paolorotolo/android-studio sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install android-studio
In order to install Android Studio on Ubuntu Studio 14.04 and derivatives, do the following:
Step 1: Open a terminal using the Dash or pressing
Ctrl + Alt + T keys.
Step 2: If you have not, add that repository with the following command:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:paolorotolo/android-studio
Step 3: Update the APT with the command:
sudo apt-get update
Step 4: Now install the program with the command:
sudo apt-get install android-studio
Step 5: Once installed, run the program by typing in Dash:
Don’t forget to run:
when you are done installing.
Here’s how I installed android studio on xubuntu.
1. Install JDK:
Go through following commands to install jdk
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-set-default
If you want to install other version of jdk than replace your version number with 7 in last two commands.
2. Download the latest android studio from official site:
It is better to use latest version of android studio because I tried to install version 1.5.1 and it was not working. Then I installed version 2.1.1 and it run perfectly.
- Extract downloaded android studio file in whichever folder you want.
Now go to extracted android studio–>bin directory and open terminal here. Now run following:./studio.sh
And that’s it. If you are facing any problem than comment below.
Android Studio PPA is maintained by Paolo Rotolo. We just need to add PPA to our system and install it using the following commands:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:paolorotolo/android-studio $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install android-studio

I was just investigating this issue now, you should use Ubuntu Make
Which “is a command line tool which allows you to download the latest version of popular developer tools on your installation”
