I have an Ubuntu 16.04 OS which is offline and does not have an internet connection. I have downloaded and installed Android Studio 3.0.1 from another PC to that offline OS. I have also downloaded android-SDK-tools which I don't know what to do with.

When I start Android Studio it asks for the Android SDK path, but I can't find any link to download it. From my searching, the latest version is 26, but I could not find any direct 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 download anything from android.com through its website nor apt-get nor android studio built-in downloads, so please mind this stipulation 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 (?) Mar 17, 2018 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
