Here are some neato scripts for easily installing apps on Ubuntu. The apps will be installed into a reasonably-named folder in
/opt, and a well-formed .desktop file will be added to
/usr/share/applications so that the app appears in the OS application launcher.
- Download the latest version of Android Studio as a .tar.gz file from developer.android.com/studio.
- Download the script android-studio.sh.
- Run the script with
bash android-studio.sh android-studio-ide-linux.tar.gz(replace
android-studio-ide-linux.tar.gzwith the name of your Android Studio .tar.gz file).
After it installs Android Studio, this particular script also fixes a permissions issue with running Android emulators.
