I get these errors when I use it with Fish. Not sure if it is a packaging issue or it should be reported upstream.

Contrary to "baba.opensource", I find everything works perfectly with this 2020.3.1 Arctic Fox. Thank you for the update.

For the record, I had serious issues with 2020.3.1.22 & 2020.3.1.23.

I could not create new projects, gradle build would get stuck on old projects, etc.

I started the studio from the command line and noticed a bizzar exception. I have appended it to this comment in case it may be helpful.

Ended up downloading the tar file and manually unpacking, etc. Then everything started working.

Sorry couldn't figure out what was wrong - spent a few hours but not cigar

I think there is a patch for arctic fox. Here is how I updated my system

It's still broken today. I tried it in windows just to see if it works, it works fine on windows 10.

This latest update causes the IDE to give an error on startup about a corrupt installation. I tried a complete uninstall and reinstall with the same error.



Corrupted Installation Missing essential plugin: Please reinstall Android Studio from scratch.

Note that 'ncurses5-compat-libs' is an optional dependency needed for native debugger support.

Please kindly consider updating this package to the new version numbering system.
My personal changes for the first new release were…
[line 11-12]
[line 23 & must add latest checksum @26]

Although I am not quite sure myself: In the "-beta" package they believe the pkgrel to still be '1' and the (never officially mentioned) ".22" being part of the version number. Furthermore, the build number might be something else or obsolete entirely (I got it from the latest NDK).
The latest checksum can be found directly on the according website, so I won't provide mine. Many thanks.
