How to install Android Studio 2.2.3 on Ubuntu 16.04, 16.10

   Android Studio is the official Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Android app development, based on IntelliJ IDEA . On top of IntelliJ's powerful code editor and developer tools, Android Studio offers even more features that enhance your productivity when building Android apps

Android Studio 2.2.3 changelog:
  •   ProGuard version rollback. Due to a correctness issue discovered in ProGuard 5.3.1, we have rolled back to ProGuard 5.2.1. We have worked with the ProGuard team on getting a fix quickly, and we expect to roll forward to ProGuard 5.3.2 in Android Studio 2.3 Canary 3.
  •   Bug fix for aaptOptions IgnoreAssetsPattern not working properly
  •   Bug fix for Gradle autodownload for Constraint Layout library
  •   Bug fix for a JDK8/Kotlin compiler + dx issue
  •   See all bug fixes in 2.2.3.

Installation instructions:

    Since Android Studio 2.2.3 is not yet available on any PPA repository, we will go ahead and install it via the source file. Before we do that, we need to first install Oracle Java JDK/JRE 7 which is required for Android Studio to run.

    Java 9 appears not to work so stick to Java 7. or Java 8

    Open terminal and insert command line...

$ sudo apt-get purge openjdk*s

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

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

$ sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-set-default

Download and Install Android Studio 2.2.3 package
$ wget

$ unzip

$ cd android-studio/bin

$ ./
