Ubuntu: Can I install android studio in ubuntu? [closed]


Should I install android studio in ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS having 3 GB of ram and 5 GB of swap so is it feasible to install android studio?


Yes, you can perfectly install and run Android Studio with that specs.

I have it running in a 2,0Ghz Centrino from the Core2Duo era with 2gb of ram and 4 gb swap, and runs pretty well.

However you should have some considerations in mind:

  • You should avoid using android emulator due to memory limitations, use then a real android device.

  • Oracle JVM is recommended over OpenJDK for GUI apps like Android Studio. You can install it following this instructions:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer

    At this point you'll be prompted to accept the license agreement, use cursor keys to select Yes and press Enter.

    Then run: sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-set-default to update system defaults.

Anyway don't expect same performance as a desktop i7 + 8gb of ram (I have it too), is very usable, but there are tasks such compiling, indexing, etc, which may take a bit longer.
