Android-Studio

Post by Nanook » Sun Oct 07, 2018 7:33 am

Would be nice if Android Studio was as easy to install on MxLinux as it is on Debian, Mint, Julinux, and Ubuntu:

add-apt-repository ppa:maarten-fonville/android-studio
apt update
apt install android-studio

This PPA does not work with MxLinux, it causes MxLinux apt to barf big time.

On the PPAs, also others, be careful; there is reason for the user icon to be like that in the beginning ;)


Maybe someone can package it up for you.

The add-apt-repository command is an Ubuntu command, not a Debian one. Not surprisingly this command won't work on MX.

The add-apt-repository command is in a package that both Ubuntu, Debian, and thus MX have in the repos, but Ubuntu has it installed by default.

It looks like the PPA package is just an installer script, which makes sense the way Google wants to be the sole distributor of their programs. I'll see if we can add it to the repo.

Android-studio and its oracle-java8-installer dependency are now available in the MX-17 Test repository.
Use the Package Installer in MX-Tools to install them.

Copy of discussion from Facebook page

Worked and installed successfully but watching details in synaptic while it installed it did a couple of strange things, it printed configuration file could not be read five times, then proceeded with the install, then when it got all done it said, "no package selected" but yet the box was now marked installed. I fired it up and tested and it worked fine. Thank you much!

A bit more about the OP, copied from our discussion on the FB page (which started out a bit rocky, but an understanding was reached)

I run a service that offers, among other things, public Linux shell servers, with both ssh for text and x2go for full graphics and sound access, with centos6, centos7, debian, mint, julinux, ubuntu, scientific linux 6, scientific linux 7, opensuse, zorin, and mxlinux being among the choices. It affords people who want to test their software on a variety of platforms a means to do so, it also offers a lot of development tools for people developing software, web authoring tools, office tools, graphics tools, etc. With this wide of spread of distributions I like to keep things as uniform as possible. I put android-studio on all of the other debian derived linuxes. I do realize that mxlinux is not a direct but rather indirect debian decedent, none the less because it uses .deb files we put it in that class here. Mxlinux is a recent add for us, so far it has been reasonably well behaved. Since some people deciding on which distribution to install and which windowing system to use will try the various options on our server, it makes sense for mxlinux to be the best display it can be. We also offer private virtual servers for people who want to get into it at a level that would not be appropriate on a shared server. So hopefully now that I've made it a bit more clear as to how I am using it, it will help you understand out needs. I don't intend to suggest that there is any obligation on your part, just that there is some degree of mutual interest here.

But MX is more of a direct Debian offshoot than all the Ubuntu children. I hope the OP doesn't think that just because Ubuntu and Debian both use .deb files as their binary packaging format, one can just interchangeably install any Ubuntu .deb file in a Debian-based distro.

Anyway, good that it works for him.
