i dont understand the problem. i did searched on internet and tried many methods like


  1. changing permissions with chmod:

    chmod +x /home/alex/android-studio/sdk/build-tools/android-4.2.2/dx



it executes successfully but with no effect on the problem itself,

2.closing and re-importing project,

3.i also tried this,

sudo apt-get install lib32stdc++
sudo apt-get install lib32z1


and i get following result

suUs12@suUs12:~/Android/Sdk$ sudo apt-get install lib32stdc++6
Reading package lists... Done

Package lib32stdc++6 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package 'lib32stdc++6' has no installation candidate


i guess this is not issue since my system is 32 bit and this is for 64 bit systems.

Can anyone help? since i am really counting on it.

my system configurations:(if useful)

-OS Version: 0.2.1 "Luna" ( 32-bit ),
Built on: Ubuntu 12.04 ( "Precise" )

-installed OpenJdk 7:
java version "1.6.0_34"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.13.6) (6b34-1.13.6-1ubuntu0.12.04.1)

OpenJDK Client VM (build 23.25-b01, mixed mode, sharing)

Answer

i'm running android studio 1.0.2 on ubuntu 14.04 (LTS) 32 bit and i had the same problem. just go to /home/suUs12/Android/Sdk/build-tools/21.1.2/ and then right click on 'aapt' file , properties -> permissions and check 'Allow executing file as program'. then close the window. in my case,after giving permission for 'aapt' file, i had to give the same permission for 'dx' and 'zipalign' files in the same directory (/home/suUs12/Android/Sdk/build-tools/21.1.2/) and i was able to run my first app using android studio.
