Before you set up Android Studio, be sure you have installed JDK 6 or greater (the JRE alone is not sufficient), or Install Oracle JDK 8 on Ubuntu 14.04.
The installation is very straightforward:
- Download Android Studio Beta v0.8.0 with the Android SDK for Linux HERE.
- Unpack the downloaded Tar file, android-studio-bundle-
.tgz, into an appropriate location for your applications.
- To launch Android Studio, navigate to the android-studio/bin/ directory in a terminal and execute studio.sh.
Update Android Studio:
If you are running Android Studio 0.8.x, simple restart it, or manually check Help > Check for Update...
Update Android SDK in Android Studio:
- Click Configure
- Click SDK Manager
