I'm an Ubuntu 14.04.1 user and installed android-studio-ide-135.1641136-linux.zip, but when I run it using terminal command ./studio.sh, it opens but an alert appears:

External file changes sync may be slow

Native file watcher is not executable: /home/ron/android-studio/bin/fsnotifier

and I can’t open it through launcher. How can I resolve this problem?


Try the following...

chmod +x /home/ron/android-studio/bin/fsnotifier

When install Android studio then you will be asked for install packages. After doing that Android studio will open then go to - configure > create desktop entry.

Thats all to launch it from ubuntu menu under "Programming"
