Install Android Studio on Fedora 35

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Android Studio on Fedora 35. For those of you who didn’t know, Android Studio provides the fastest tools for building apps on every type of Android device and is currently the official Google Android IDE. Android Studio offers world-class code editing, performance tooling, debugging, a flexible build system, and an instant build/deployment of android applications thus helping accelerate the build process.

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 Fedora 35.

Prerequisites

  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 35.
  • 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).
  • A non-root sudo useror 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.
