Android Studio Package
Utility to build Debian package from Android Studio binary distribution.
There are two ways of installing Android Studio Package: Installation of the stable or latest version. The stable version is distributed through the PM Code Works APT repository and is fully tested but does not contain the latest changes.
Installation of the stable version
Add PM Code Works repository
~# echo "deb http://apt.pm-codeworks.de stretch main" | tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pm-codeworks.list
~# echo "deb http://apt.pm-codeworks.de buster main" | tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pm-codeworks.list
Add PM Code Works signing key
~# wget -qO - http://apt.pm-codeworks.de/pm-codeworks.de.gpg | apt-key add - ~# apt-get update
Install the package
~# apt-get install android-studio-package
Installation of the latest version
The latest version contains the latest changes that may not have been fully tested and should therefore not be used productively. It is recommended to install the stable version.
Install required packages for building
~# apt-get install git devscripts
Clone this repository
~$ git clone https://github.com/philippmeisberger/android-studio-package.git
Build the package
~$ cd ./android-studio-package/ ~$ dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us
Install the package
~# dpkg -i ../android-studio-package*.deb
Download Android Studio IDE archive file from https://developer.android.com/studio/index.html and execute
make-aspkg with the downloaded file as argument. The Debian package is built in the current directory.
Building on 32-bit Debian
To build Android Studio on a 32-bit Debian the 64-bit version of
libc6 library is required. Otherwise following error will occur
dpkg-shlibdeps: error: couldn't find library libc.so.6. Use Multiarch capabilities of Debian and enable installation of 64-bit packages:
~# dpkg --add-architecture amd64
Install 64-bit version of
~# apt-get install libc6:amd64
Then building will succeed on 32-bit Debian.
Installation of Android Studio
If Android Studio should be installed on 64-bit Debian some 32-bit libraries are required. It is recommended to use Multiarch capabilities of Debian and enable installation of 32-bit packages:
~# dpkg --add-architecture i386
Then install Android Studio
~# dpkg -i android-studio_*.deb
Finally install missing dependencies
~# apt-get install -f
Please remind that Android Studio requires at least Java 8.
