Install Android Studio on Fedora 30
First of all, go to the Android Studio website. Then download the Linux version. The website recognizes which system you are using. So just click on the Download Android Studio button.

Once downloaded, it is necessary to install some dependencies. Open the terminal and type the following.
:~$ sudo dnf install zlib.i686 ncurses-libs.i686 bzip2-libs.i686
After that, decompress the downloaded file in /opt/.
:~$ cd /opt/ :~$ sudo tar -xvzf /home/your-user/Downloads/android-studio-ide-183.5522156-linux.tar.gz
Obviously, be careful with the path and name of the downloaded file.
Then, run the wizard.
:~$ cd android-studio/bin :~$ sh studio
Now, you will see the wizard.
Then, choose the type of the installation.
After that, select the theme. I like the dark theme, but select what you prefer.
Next, you will see the summary.
Then, the installation will begin. The wizard will download other required components. Be patience.
The process will take time. Then, you can start a new project.
The next step is to configure the project.
Now you can start to do fantastic Android applications.
And that’s it.
