I just somehow installed Android Studio on my PC with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS using some 'here&there' guides on internet. But I am not sure if it will work correctly OR if is installed properly.

Is there any way to check and confirm the same? I am asking this because I will be out of the town for some days without proper internet. So I don't want any kind of download related interruptions. Please see and help.

    It is almost impossible to determine from what you posted. Try running it

  • Be aware that android-studio downloads things "on the fly" depending on what you are doing, what android version you are testing with etc. It downloads from dl.google.com which does not work behind a "captive network" ie. the sort of public wifi that gives you a login page the first time you use it. Fine if you are a pro sitting in an office with good wifi bit otherwise...

But I am not sure if it will work correctly OR is it installed properly ?

Try below steps to find out:-

  1. Open terminal
  2. Navigate to android-studio/bin/ directory
  3. Execute studio.sh, by typing ./studio.sh
  • As such the whole application is loading full fledge. I am able to load new project and can see all greens (at bottom where files load).
