Does anyone could give me a detail explanation how to install Android Studio?

I’m new at Manjaro Stable, just weeks ago I’ve installed it
It’s really difficult to explain me well because I’m just English intermidiate.

I’ve heard many times about Anbox sadly that project is dead
In another thread one user of this forum recommend me Waydroid, unfortunately that package is not for Nvidia graphic cards

My PC an old:

System Information

Operating System: Xfce -Manjaro 22.05
CPU: Intel Core i7-6800k CPU @3.40Ghz x 12
GPU: Geforce GT 730 2Gb

Thanks in advance


Preferred method:

Not necessarily recommended:

the first link is more clear for beginner but if someone watch that the required dependencies are only for Ubuntu and Fedora.

the second link I watched really looks like Chinese to me

Do you know if the steps of this link(How to Install Android Studio on Manjaro Linux 21) for Android Studio to install through Snap are still working?

$ sudo pacman -S snapd
$ sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket
$ sudo ln -s /var/lib/snapd/snap /snap
$ sudo snap install android-studio --classic

or I’ll need more dependencies?

Exactly. Android Studio expects to be in your Home directory with write access, not installed to the system in /opt/ like the AUR package does.

Just make sure you have the dependencies installed listed for the AUR package.

Huh? How do you watch a link and what looks like Chinese?

I neither recommend following random garbage “tech” blogs nor using the Snap.

That’s translation. In some languages look/view/watch map to the same word.
Chinese is a metaphor for being written in a not understandable way. Other languages would say “like Spanish” or funnily in German “I only understand train station”.

However, I don’t Like snap, and isn’t it a Jetbrains product? So you could install the jetbrains-toolbox AppImage and install Android Studio from there.
