I am new user of Ubuntu LTS on a Samsung Chromebook Plus that has an arm64 processor. Android Studio won't install because it can't locate the JDK. I am trying to download and install the JDK, but there doesn't seem to be a install or setup sh file to run. I tried extracting it to /usr/bin but I don't have access.


You can install Android Studio on Ubuntu which is installed on a Chromebook, but you don't need to install a separate Java package because Android Studio contains its own embedded JDK. You will get disappointing performance if your Chromebook does not meet the following system requirements.

System Requirements

  • GNOME or KDE desktop
  • 64-bit distribution capable of running 32-bit applications
  • GNU C Library (glibc) 2.19 or later
  • 2 GB of available disk space minimum, 4 GB recommended (500 MB for IDE + 1.5 GB for Android SDK and emulator system image)
  • 1280 x 800 minimum screen resolution

    Y 3 GB RAM minimum, 8 GB RAM recommended; plus 1 GB for the Android Emulator

To change various settings for your Android Studio project, open the Project Structure dialog by clicking File -> Project Structure. It contains the SDK Location which sets the location of the JDK that your project uses.
