Based on similar questions i think this is not an off-topic question neither duplicate, i also have looked at Stackoverflow and Askubuntu for my problem but there was not any answer and most of them were for older versions.

I have an Ubuntu 16.04 OS witch is offline and does not have internet connection, I have downloaded and installed android studio 3.0.1 from other PC to that offline OS, i also have downloaded android-SDK-tools witch i don't know what to do with.

when i start android studio it asks for android SDK path but i can't find any link to download it. as long as i have searched the latest version is 26 but there i could not find any straight way to download it.


Is there any link to download the latest version of Android-SDK for Gnu/Linux operating systems like Ubuntu?

Important: unfortunately google does not let users from my location to download any thing from it's android.com through it's website nor apt-get nor android studio built in downloads, so please mind it in your answers.

  • Not being able to download from Google, nor being able to use apt-get will make this very hard. Perhaps getting a VPN to get around this might be the easiest way (?) – JonasCz - Reinstate Monica Mar 17 '18 at 17:31

The easiest way is to install Ubuntu Make and then install android-sdk from it:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lyzardking/ubuntu-make
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-make

umake android android-sdk
  • Yes it may help. but it;s not possible for me where i live. is there any way to go around with this google limitations? – yekanchi Mar 17 '18 at 14:46
