This question already has an answer here:

I have shifted to Ubuntu only few weeks ago and after setting up Ubuntu my first step was to setup Eclipse for android development. I do not have any knowledge of Linux. I have searched on google and on this website for a comprehensive guide. Most of the guides are for older versions of Ubuntu and most of the instructions are not working for me. As I am not very well-versed in linux so often I had to start over with clean copy of Ubuntu. I have found this guide that have ultimately made the android development worked for me.

Hopefully it will help other users too.

    It would be great if you included the Java installation. – Rudi Strydom Aug 24 '15 at 18:16
