I have very recently installed Android studio,
Download the Android Studio for linux, place it in home directory. (Not mandatory, but prefer)
Unpack the downloaded ZIP, right click and click extract here.
Go to android-studio --> bin --> click on studio.sh
Download the Android Studio for linux, then run the commands to install.
yes you can
i recommend you to install it (and update it later when needed) through snapd
sudo apt install snapd
then follow the website instructions
sudo snap install android-studio --channel
to update later
sudo snap refresh android-studio
sudo apt install libc6:i386 libncurses5:i386 libstdc++6:i386
Has worked flawlessly on many installs. Below is my full AS installation script if you needed more configuration, particularly KVM for hardware acceleration. The source is from my complete setup script on GitHub Gist
sudo apt update -qq
sudo apt upgrade
Unfortunately only GTK3.10+-applications with a HeaderBar are able to set specific themevariants.
For any other application there is a workaround:
Gtk Theme Variant Switcher
Install it and add the WM_CLASS of Android Studio, this should do the trick.
Try with this command just change the things you need to, like the Nexus device to the one you are using.
LD_PRELOAD='/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6.0.21' ~/Android/Sdk/tools/emulator -netdelay none -netspeed full -avd Nexus_4_API_23
This helped me, hope it helps you too
