Install Android Studio via PPA in Ubuntu 14.10

Installing Android Studio in Ubuntu becomes easy. A Ubuntu PPA contains simple script that automatically downloads and installs the latest release from Google download server.


1. Android Studio depends on Java, and Oracle Java 7 or 8 is recommended. Press Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard to open terminal. When it opens, run the commands below one by one:

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer oracle-java8-set-default

2. To add the Android Studio PPA, run the command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:paolorotolo/android-studio

Then update package lists and install the script:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install android-studio

Depends on your internet connection, it takes a few minutes downloading the source package.

Once installed, start the setup wizard from the Unity Dash (may need restart), or just run command /opt/android-studio/bin/
