Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Android Studio is an Android development environment created by Google, similar to Eclipse, providing tools for both development and debugging. Android Studio 1.1 has been recently released. For more information, see this page.
In this article I will show you how to install Android Studio 1.1 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, LXLE 14.04, Pinguy OS 14.04, Pinguy OS 12.04, Peppermint Five and other Ubuntu derivative systems.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Android Studio 1.1 on the listed Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, Elementary OS, LXLE and Peppermint systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the android-studio package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:paolorotolo/android-studio
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install android-studio
Optional, to uninstall android-studio and downgrade all the packages that got upgraded via the ppa, do:
$ sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
$ sudu ppa-purge ppa:paolorotolo/android-studio
