I've just installed Android Studio. After installing, I forgot to add in the launcher. I restarted the system.

Now I want to launch Android Studio from Terminal. I've tried everything but didn't work.

cd into the directory where you unzipped the android studio installer zip file. The folder is named android-studio. It could be in your ~/Downloads folder if you downloaded it from the internet. Now cd into the bin folder and run the studio.sh file

./studio.sh

  • if your extracted zip file path is PATH_TO_ZIP_FILE, then type PATH_TO_ZIP_FILE/android-studio/bin/studio.sh . For example if the android-studio folder is in downloads directory type $HOME/Downloads/android-studio/bin/studio.sh Commented Oct 30, 2016 at 16:50

option 1 : set path alias in bashrc file by echo command

echo "alias android='/usr/local/android-studio/bin/studio.sh'" >> ~/.bashrc
source .bashrc

option 2 : set path alias by opening bashrc file.

open bashrc file on nano editor

nano ~/.bashrc

paste this text in bashrc file

alias android='/usr/local/android-studio/bin/studio.sh'

ctrl + S to save file . Ctrl + X to exit.

finally source it

source ~/.bashrc

To run android studio, you need to type only

android

If you want to use terminal to start a program then you should be knowing the command to be written in terminal. To know the command in Kubuntu I use the Kmenuedit. In kmenuedit find that program and that program's details there will be a field named command there you will find text to be written in terminal. Another option is to check system monitor program that also has a column named command. So you can check running instances of programs and command.

I tried to reduce job by setting an environment variable

echo "alias android_studio=/usr/local/android-studio/bin/studio.sh" >> ~/.bashrc
source .bashrc

Whenever want to open Android Studio just fire command

android_studio

I hope this will reduce your work.

Good luck..!
