Android Studio Under Debian – The Return

So, in trying to actually run Android Studio on a new machine, I’ve had to add a few more dependencies. You can see the original post here: Android Studio Under Debian. Now I am running Debian Testing, and came up against some more interesting missing dependencies after that when creating a new project. So if you get an error like so:

> /home/tbsliver/<snip>/app/src/main/res/drawable-xxhdpi/ic_launcher.png: Error: Cannot run program “/home/tbsliver/Development/android-studio/sdk/build-tools/20.0.0/aapt”: error=2, No such file or directory

Then you need to install a few extra packages. Elsewhere on the internet it will tell you to install ‘ia32-libs’, however these have been replaced with two other packages. So install them as so:

sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5

And then you will also need one final package which you will get errors about otherwise:

sudo apt-get install lib32stdc++6

After that, it should work and run the Gradle commands nicely! hope this helps someone! (or just reminds me what the issues are later)
