Linux is a great system that stands out for its security and stability. It is also free and quite efficient in the management of computer resources. That is why, many developers use it for their work, including developers of mobile platforms such as Android. Today, I will show you how to install Android Studio 3.2 on Ubuntu 18.04/18.10.

Android Studio is the official IDE for the development of applications for the Android operating system. Android is present in most cell phones in the world. That’s why developers create their applications for Android, because they know it will be used by millions.

With this in mind, I’ll show you how to install Android Studio on Ubuntu 18.04 and Ubuntu 18.10.

The process is simple, however, it is good to keep in mind that it requires some handling of the terminal and its terminology.

On the other hand, you need a user who has enabled the use of sudo for terminal commands.

Finally you need a computer with Ubuntu 18.04 or Ubuntu 18.10 (BETA) installed. Obvious.

First, open a terminal and run:

:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
