Android Studio was released a few days ago and it's still in early access preview, but I would like to know if there is any PPA I could add to my Ubuntu Raring to automatically keep it updated with
Since no official release yet, I made it for myself (which is 13.10
saucy -- I didn't know will it be compatible with other version of Ubuntu?)
add-apt-repository ppa:neizod/ppa apt-get update apt-get install android-studio-installer
This package does not resolve Java dependency, you still need to install it manually. My recommend is to use
oracle-java7-installer package from
On installation, it will download zip file which size is approx 400MB, so make sure you have at lease 1GB (2 x 400MB) available. Zip file will be auto-remove after installed.
The program directory will be
/usr/lib/android-studio/, only one command export to
android-studio, which is symlink to
/usr/lib/android-studio/bin/studio.sh. If you need other commands, call it with full path under root role, e.g.
I also put
/usr/share/applications/, so another way to start program is to use Unity lens and search for
Android Studio (might need a reboot to make it show).
There is no need of external PPA anymore since Canonical released
Ubuntu make that allow an easiest installation of
Installing Ubuntu Make :
For Ubuntu 14.04, 14.10 users :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-desktop/ubuntu-make sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ubuntu-make
For Ubuntu 15.04 and up :
Ubuntu make is already in official repositories, run :
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-make
Installing Android Studio :
umake android android-ndk
Uninstall Android Studio :
umake android --remove
Android Studio, has no ppa available at the moment of writing (10-17-2013), so you are stuck building and installing the Linux package as presented in the installation guide. Of course, if you have the knowledge to create Debian packages, feel free to do so.
I'm packaging these tools for Gajj Distro, if lauchpad will allocate more space to my repo android studio will be available by the evening.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linuxgndu/gajj-sci
For 14.04 use
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linuxgndu/adt-raring sudo apt-get update
For Android Developers Tool
sudo apt-get install adt
For Android Studio
sudo apt-get install android-studio
You also have to install Android-sdk
sudo apt-get install android-sdk sudo sh /opt/android-sdk/install-sdk
You can also help me testing my package builds, bcz i'm newbie i don't know that much about ppa & packaging.
The canonical way to install seems to be ubuntu-make https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-make
I've just packaged Android Studio for Ubuntu.
You can install it from here: http://paolorotolo.github.io/android-studio/
An automatically kept up to date PPA and with many fixes: https://mfonville.github.io/android-studio/

Then, you can either install:
There is an unofficial PPA from Paolo Ratolo (Italian teenager from Numix team). Here is how you can do it:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:paolorotolo/android-studio sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install android-studio
