Installing Android Studio in Ubuntu 13.04

May 17, 2013 § 2 Comments

Go to http://developer.android.com/sdk/installing/studio.html and download Android studio for linux. It will download a tar file in your Downloads folder. Once downloaded, open Nautilus, navigate to Downloads folder, right click in android-studio-bundle-130.677228-linux and select “extract here”.

Now you have a new folder named “android studio“. Move this folder to your Home folder.
To run the IDE, open the terminal and type:

cd android-studio/bin
./studio.sh

If you are on Ubuntu default installation, using OpenJava, you will see this warning:

terminal
If you press Enter Android studio will start with this window:

android studio start

Troubleshooting

Installing Oracle Java SDK:

There are two ways for installing Oracle Java SDK.

First method:

First the easy one. Open the console and type:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

Ok, now let’s check the java version installed. Type:

java -version

and you should see something like:

java version “1.7.0_21”
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_21-b11)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.21-b01, mixed mode)

Second method:

Go to http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/es/java/javase/downloads/index.html and download Java JDK. Be sure to download the tar.gz corresponding to your architecture (Linuxx86 or Linuxx64)

Uncompress the file:

tar -xvf jdk-7u21-linux-i586.tar.gz (32bit)

tar -xvf jdk-7u21-linux-x64.tar.gz (64bit)

Now let’s move the uncompressed folder to /usr/lib

sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/jvm

sudo mv ./jdk1.7.0_21 /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0

Now run in terminal:

sudo update-alternatives –install “/usr/bin/java” “java” “/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0/bin/java” 1
sudo update-alternatives –install “/usr/bin/javac” “javac” “/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0/bin/javac” 1
sudo update-alternatives –install “/usr/bin/javaws” “javaws” “/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0/bin/javaws” 1

Change ownership and permissions:

sudo chmod a+x /usr/bin/java
sudo chmod a+x /usr/bin/javac
sudo chmod a+x /usr/bin/javaws
sudo chown -R root:root /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0

run:

sudo update-alternatives –config java

and choose the option corresponding to /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0/bin/java
do the same for

sudo update-alternatives –config javac
sudo update-alternatives –config javaws

Now check the version with

java -version
