A Quickie on Using Android Studio on Ubuntu

Friday, May 17th, 2013

The original post below applies to old versions. For 0.4.x plus, you don’t need to do this. You just need to have a proper Oracle JRE/JDK installed system wide which you can do with this:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install oracle-jdk7-installer

With the recent preview release of Android Studio it’s important to know that it won’t work properly on Ubuntu with the OpenJDK that’s available.

Fortunately, it’s easy to get it going.

  1. Download the official Oracle JDK
  2. Unpack it (I put mine in ~/SDK/jdk1.7.0_21/ )
  3. Point your JAVA_HOME to this.
    ~/android-studio/bin$ export JAVA_HOME=~/SDK/jdk1.7.0_21/
  4. Run the android studio startup script.
    ~/android-studio/bin$ ./studio.sh
  5. Make awesome android apps.

Have Fun!

Building An API…

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

I’ve decided it’s important for me to be able to expand my trivia to many different platforms.  Although it’s simple to just make it for facebook and call it a day, I think it’s something that should be more than that.

So, I’m building an api for it.  The game play api (as I’ll call it) will allow me to build other front end applications, which will all effectively operate the same way… It’ll delay the release by a little bit, but it’s something I have to do.
