How to install Android Studio in Ubuntu, elementary OS, and Linux Mint

The easiest way to install Android Studio on Ubuntu based distros is by using ‘Make’ command. The command takes care of lot of manual things that would most of time be default settings. Without wasting much time, let’s get started.

android-studio

Install Java

First step in this process is to install Java. Launch ‘Terminal’ and run the following commands one at a time.

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

Install Ubuntu Make & Android Studio

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-desktop/ubuntu-make
sudo apt update
sudo apt install ubuntu-make
umake android

If there is an error message about a license issue, it can be corrected using an additional command:

umake android --accept-license

That’s it. Android Studio will now get downloaded and then installed. You will have to follow the simple on-screen instructions to complete the installation. After the installation is complete, you should be able to launch ‘Android Studio’ from ‘Applications’.

Hi there! I’m Kiran Kumar, founder of FOSSLinux.com. I’m an avid Linux lover, and enjoys hands-on with new promising distros. Currently, I’m using Linux Mint as a daily driver and run several other distros such as Fedora, Solus, Ubuntu, Debian, and some new ones on my test PC and virtual machines. I have a day job as an Engineer, and this website is one of my favorite past time activities especially during Winter ;). When I’m not writing for FOSSLinux, I’m seen biking and hiking on scenic trails. Hope you enjoy using this website as much as I do writing for it. Feedback from readers is something that inspires me to do more, and spread my love for Linux. If you find time, drop me an email or feedback from ‘Contact’ page.
