Ubuntu: New Android Studio IDE not supported in Linux?



Question:

I have Ubuntu 16.04.1 on my machine and my system meets all the requirements given in the Android Studio home page. My system information and the Android Studio installation page as seen from my browser are given in the links given below http://i.stack.imgur.com/p32mU.png http://i.stack.imgur.com/0ZmS1.png Before this I had elementary 0.4 installed on my system which showed the same error. Should I try installing Ubuntu 12.04 or am I missing something else? My system information:

Architecture:          x86_64  CPU op-mode(s):        32-bit, 64-bit  Byte Order:            Little Endian  CPU(s):                4  On-line CPU(s) list:   0-3  Thread(s) per core:    2  Core(s) per socket:    2  Socket(s):             1  NUMA node(s):          1  Vendor ID:             GenuineIntel  CPU family:            6  Model:                 69  Model name:            Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-4010U CPU @ 1.70GHz  Stepping:              1  CPU MHz:               902.792  CPU max MHz:           1700.0000  CPU min MHz:           800.0000  BogoMIPS:              3392.13  Virtualization:        VT-x  L1d cache:             32K  L1i cache:             32K  L2 cache:              256K  L3 cache:              3072K  NUMA node0 CPU(s):     0-3  

and the message in my browser says, YOUR OPERATING SYSTEM IS NOT SUPPORTED see the requirements.


Solution:1

The problem here is not related to your operating system, so the "YOUR OPERATING SYSTEM IS NOT SUPPORTED" error message is completely misleading.

This seems to be only a problem in Firefox but not in Chromium and Chrome. I was able to download Android Studio in Chromium and Chrome but not Firefox. The easiest solution is to use Chromium or Chrome.

This problem has been reported before in Stack Overflow and the solution suggested there is to use Chrome.

Alternatively, the URL for downloading the latest version of Android Studio as of writing is https://dl.google.com/dl/android/studio/ide-zips/2.2.0.12/android-studio-ide-145.3276617-linux.zip. So, open a terminal using Ctrl+Alt+T and then download the .zip file:

wget https://dl.google.com/dl/android/studio/ide-zips/2.2.0.12/android-studio-ide-145.3276617-linux.zip  

Then, follow the installation instructions at https://developer.android.com/studio/install.html to install Android Studio.

Update: It looks like the Android Studio website has been fixed for some Firefox users and I can now see the download button in my own Firefox (version 49.0). I would like to think this question has brought attention to what I perceive as a discriminatory practice by Google/Android.


Solution:2

I recommend to use official Android page, section Tools to download directly newest Android Studio: http://tools.android.com/download/studio/builds/android-studio-2-2-stable

Direct link (Linux): https://dl.google.com/dl/android/studio/ide-zips/2.2.0.12/android-studio-ide-145.3276617-linux.zip

I'm already using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with Chrome, so as someone said this might be problem with web browser not system

Hope it will help
