Ubuntu Make is a command line tool which allows you to download the latest version of popular developer tools on your installation, installing it longside all the required dependencies (which will only ask for root access if you don't have all the required dependencies installed already), enable multi-arch on your system if you are on a 64 bit machine, integrate it with the Unity launcher… Basically, one command to get your system ready to develop with!
How to use it
Example: how to install Ubuntu Make and then, Android Studio.
Installing Ubuntu Make
If you are on latest development Ubuntu version, first, add the Ubuntu Make ppa:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-desktop/ubuntu-make
sudo apt-get update
Then, installing Ubuntu Make:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-make
How to install android-sdk
And then, accept the installation path and Google license. It will download, install all requirements alongside Android Studio and latest android SDK itself, then configure and fit it into the system like by adding an Unity launcher icon…
And that's it! Happy Android application hacking on Ubuntu. You will find the familiar experience with the android emulator and sdk manager + auto-updater to always be on the latest.
