Install Android Studio on 64-bit Ubuntu 15.10 with Ubuntu Make (umake)

Ubuntu Make is a command line tool which allows you to download the latest version of popular developer tools (include Android Studio) on your installation, installing it longside all the required dependencies (which will only ask for root access if you don't have all the required dependencies installed already), enable multi-arch on your system if you are on a 64 bit machine, integrate it with the Unity launcher… Basically, one command to get your system ready to develop with!


To install Android Studio on Ubuntu:

- Add the Ubuntu Make ppa:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-desktop/ubuntu-make
$ sudo apt-get update

- Install Ubuntu Make:
$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-make

- Install android-studio:
$ umake android

Once finished, it will also install Java 7 (1.7.0_85 currently) on your system.
