How To Install Android Studio on Debian 12

Install Android Studio on Debian 12

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Android Studio on Debian 12. Android Studio, the official Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Android app development, is a powerful tool that offers a complete, rich, and user-friendly environment for developers. It is designed to accelerate your development process and help you build high-quality apps for every type of Android device.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Android Studio on a Debian 12 (Bookworm).


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Debian 12 (Bookworm).
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • You will need an active internet connection to download the Android Studio package.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Step 1. Before installing Android Studio, we need to update the system package index. This can be done by running the following command in your terminal:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

Step 2. Install Dependencies.

Next, we need to install the Java Development Kit (JDK), as Android Studio requires it to run. OpenJDK, an open-source implementation of the Java Platform, can be installed using the following command:

sudo apt install openjdk-11-jdk openjdk-11-jre

Step 3. Installing Android Studio on Debian 12.

Now, we are ready to install Android Studio. You can download it from the official website or use a Personal Package Archive (PPA) repository for Debian. For this guide, we will download it directly from the official website using the wget command:


After the download is complete, extract the tarball using the tar command:

tar -xvf android-studio-2020.3.1.25-linux.tar.gz

Step 4. Accessing Android Studio on Debian.

Once the tarball is extracted, navigate to the Android Studio bin directory:
