Install Android Studio 2.1.2 on Ubuntu 16.04 and Derivatives
Since Android Studio 2.1.2 is not yet available on any PPA repository, we will go ahead and install it via the source file. Before we do that, we need to first install Oracle Java JDK/JRE 7 which is required for Android Studio to run.
Please note that Java 9 appears not to work so stick to Java 7. I have not tried it with Java 8 but feel free to do so and let us know if it worked.
sudo apt-get purge openjdk*s sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-set-default
