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.
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’.
