How to Install android Studio on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS




The Android Studio is a powerful application development environment for constructing Android applications. Android Studio was developed by JetBrains as IntelliJ IDEA. The Eclipse IDE was a popular choice for building Android applications before Android Studio came along. In this single environment where you can develop apps for Android phones, tablets, wearables, televisions. By implementing structured code modules, a project can be divided into functional parts for independent development, testing, and debugging. This article explains how to install Android Studio on Ubuntu.



First, For Ubuntu system to be registered on the VPSie platform, A VPSie account needs to be created if it hasn’t been created already.


Our example is based on an Ubuntu instance with GUI installed. Here is a link that will guide you to installing Ubuntu’s GUI if you do not already have it installed.

Next, we’ll install Android Studio using the SANP Utility. Run the following command to locate Android Studio.


# snap find "android-studio"



Now install it:


# sudo snap install android-studio --classic



Now that Android Studio has been installed, open it in Activities by searching for Android Studio.





Since I don’t have Android Studio set up, I’m leaving it at “Do not import settings” then click on OK.




Now follow the installation:
