How to install Android Studio in Ubuntu

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
cd android-studio-ide-135.1641136-linux

JDK 1.7 is required for Studio 1.0 onwards:

  1. Download the ubuntu zip from the and repeat the steps from above
  2. 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
  3. Open Android Studio and install the SDK tools.


  1. If your system has a 32 bit processor, use Platform Tools r23.0.1. Refer to this bug for details.
