[LINUX] [Ubuntu] Install Android Studio and create a shortcut

Recently, I am trying to migrate my Android application development environment to Ubuntu (Linux Desktop). Installing Android Studio itself is easy and works, but I've taken the time to create a shortcut so I'd like to summarize it.


Installing Android Studio is easy, just download Android Studio and unzip it to any location. This time, extract Android Studio to / opt and install it.

  1. Download Android Studio
  2. Open the terminal
  3. Extract the downloaded file to / opt with the tar command.
$ cd /opt
$ tar -zxvf ~/Downloads/android-studio-ide-192.6392135-linux.tar.gz /Desktop

Create a shortcut (Desktop file)

The installed Android Studio can be started by running /opt/android-studio/bin/studio.sh. However, it is troublesome to start from the terminal every time, so create a shortcut (Desktop file) so that it can be started from the Ubuntu launcher.

  1. Open the terminal
  2. Open the file with gedit ~ / .local / share / applications / android-studio.desktop
  3. Describe and save android-studio.desktop according to How to write Desktop file.
  4. Grant execute permission to the file with chmod 773 ~ / .local / share / applications / android-studio.desktop
  5. Log out and log in

** Desktop file description example **

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Android Studio
Commend=Android Studio

Once you've created the shortcut, you'll be able to launch Android Studio from the Ubuntu launcher.
