This question already has an answer here:

I've already a working Android Studio 1.2 installed on my computer. But seems there is no installed SDK tools on my computer, so when I try to launch the Android Studio a dialog pops up saying please specify SDK location.

I've searched whole of https://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html page and sounds there are only two options.

  • Android Studio bundle, including IDE and SDK tools
  • Stand-alone SDK tools for IDEs other than Android Studio. (ADT for example).

But I need a third option that only provides SDK tools only tailored for Android Studio. Thus my question would be is there any other repository by which this option is provided?

If there is no such repository, I should download that bundle file again. (Seems would be a nightmare with my snaily network speed :) )

Please note that I've tried already stand-alone SDK with Android Studio, but seems they couldn't couple together.

  • can't you change the path to sdk and see if it works? – Ron May 11 '15 at 8:42
  • @Ron I don't have a SDK installed, I want to download it from the Internet. – Hi I'm Frogatto May 11 '15 at 8:45
  • what's the error when you install android-sdk_r24.2-linux.tgz? – Ron May 11 '15 at 8:47
  • @Ron It says Android SDK directory is not valid. – Hi I'm Frogatto May 11 '15 at 8:57
  • May be you should select the sdk folder as such for the sdk home folder and if that did not work try reinstalling Android Studion (if you still have the installer) – Ron May 11 '15 at 9:02
