I got an error while installing Android studio.

The following SDK components were not installed: source-23, extra-google-m2repository and platform-tools

Retry didn't work, so I canceled and clicked on Configure > SDK Manager. It asked me to specify SDK location, although I specified it in the begginning. I clicked Edit and chose pre-specified location and clicked Next > Next.

Got same error.

  • May be I should run $sudo ./studio.sh I will check after all my downloads are finished.. – Tahir Imanov Nov 15 '15 at 13:06
  • Don't use sudo to run Android Studio. – A.B. Nov 15 '15 at 15:58
  • @A.B. - why? I already did and it worked... – Tahir Imanov Nov 15 '15 at 18:50

In the terminal, run these two simple commands to install a fresh copy:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-make
umake android

Interact with the terminal whenever prompted. You can then launch your IDE with this command in the terminal sh /home/[user]/tools/android/android-studio/bin/studio.sh. Then, you can also learn how to create a .desktop file to run the same command outside terminal. Hopefully, this will get you out of the ocean.


  1. Replace [user] with your username, e.g., john.
  2. If the solution does not solve your problem, let me know by comments.
