The installed icon filename and Icon field value of .desktop file differ, so the default icon is showing.

Please update this package to new Android Studio Electric Eel Canary. Thanks :)

I suggest to change site.

air_guidear commented on 2021-09-03 23:08 (UTC)

Does this package auto enable HAXM if supported? I'm confused because I'm getting HAXM level performance for emulators on a clean install just by installing this package.

There was a new Canary build at Google I/O Online 2021 today

ellcs commented on 2019-03-06 23:31 (UTC)

I suggest to change the description to something similarto "Canary build Get the bleeding-edge features in a lightly tested build." as described in

The best way to tell me that things are out of date is to simply mark it so. I always update within 2-3 days of stuff being marked out of date. I don't constantly monitor for updates so I do rely on people marking.

(also note that we are precisely one minor version behind so it's hardly like I've missed many versions and this was released 3 days ago)

Girafferson commented on 2018-11-28 21:09 (UTC)

I agree with @hacker1024 I've been using this repo for years and this package always has issues staying up to date.

hacker1024 commented on 2018-11-10 23:50 (UTC)


You're taking a long time to update this package when a new version comes out. If you can't reliably maintain it anymore, could you abandon it? I'd happily maintain it.

perqin commented on 2018-08-19 04:23 (UTC)

Changing product name doesn't produce new WM_CLASS on my Arch:

$ xprop WM_CLASS
WM_CLASS(STRING) = "sun-awt-X11-XFramePeer", "jetbrains-studio"

hooger commented on 2018-05-14 22:47 (UTC)

There is a new Canary version available. Just edit the PKGCONFIG and change

pkgver= _build=181.4763614

Thanks for the speed update!

I have successfully installed latest Android Studio Canary with the following changes to this pkg:

audrius commented on 2017-11-10 18:28 (UTC)

Is there any blockers to update this to 3.1 cannary?

Segovia commented on 2017-09-06 13:08 (UTC) (edited on 2017-09-06 13:08 (UTC) by Segovia)

For problems regarding 'No disk space left' please check your `yaourt` settings (if you are using `yaourt`). By default it builds things on swap/ram. You can try adjusting swap on your needs by I recommend just changing that tmp folder to something on your hard disk (you can do that by editing the /etc/yaourtrc, look for the line that includes `TMPDIR=`). I had no problems installing this version of android studio afterwards.

tad commented on 2017-08-20 20:44 (UTC)

@ideaman924 Is your hard disk full?

commented on 2017-08-20 05:39 (UTC)

This package fails to extract properly, with Write Errors when attempting to unzip the zip. I'm trying installation with Pamac on Antergos. Any thoughts?

lalitm commented on 2017-07-21 07:37 (UTC)

Please stop flagging this package out of date by just looking at the version number. The number at the end will always be one less than the preview number.

tad commented on 2017-06-26 18:51 (UTC)

Please stop flagging this package as out-of-date. The version is off by one because Canary 4 is indeed version

loredan13 commented on 2017-06-21 13:10 (UTC)

Credentials storage does not work out of the box, it needs gnome-keyring package. Adding it as an optional dependency would be great

tad commented on 2017-06-20 18:21 (UTC)

I've patched the product name so that the application window's WM_NAME property is set to "jetbrains-studio-canary". This should fix the launcher clashing with the stable bulid when installed simultaneously. Please post a comment if this breaks anything.

XVicarious commented on 2017-06-16 01:24 (UTC)

Canary 4 is available.

audrius commented on 2017-06-03 08:51 (UTC)

I think it would be nice to update Upstream URL to or tools site is abandoned

Philzli commented on 2017-05-17 21:27 (UTC)

Just changing pkgver to and _build to 171.4010489 seems to work.

3.0 Canary 1 is now available: Linux download:

@martin.mauch That would be the AUR git repo, not something we control.

martin.mauch commented on 2016-12-08 09:31 (UTC)

It looks like the git repo is currently broken: pacaur -S android-studio-canary [10:28:04] :: Package(s) android-studio-canary not found in repositories, trying AUR... :: resolving dependencies... :: looking for inter-conflicts...

Sc4ryb3ar commented on 2016-10-27 19:36 (UTC)

@tad thank you for that confirmation :)

tad commented on 2016-10-27 18:08 (UTC)

@Sc4ryb3ar: Uninstalling/reinstalling is a non-destructive process, since all configuration is stored in your home directory. You should be able to uninstall the package and remove /opt/android-studio-canary, then install this package and retain all of your settings.

Sc4ryb3ar commented on 2016-10-27 18:05 (UTC)

I have had the canary channel installed on my system via AUR for a while now. When AS-canary updated from 2.2.1 -> 2.2.2 the app itself offered for me to update (instead of through AUR). So, I did, why not...??.... Now AUR is telling me that I am still on 2.2.1-1 and I need to update to 2.2.2-1. However when I go to update via pamac, the update fails with this error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files). This is not at all surprising to me, but I would like to "fix" my install. how do I do that without uninstalling and reinstalling?

evana commented on 2016-08-16 05:24 (UTC)

2.2 Beta changes the WM class and requires this change for window grouping to work correctly.

tad commented on 2016-08-15 03:36 (UTC)

Tip: You don't need the .install file as pacman hooks will handle updating the desktop db now.

lalitm commented on 2016-08-15 02:46 (UTC)

Updated the package for 2.2 Beta + tad@'s changes to install side by side.

pepo900 commented on 2016-08-14 14:31 (UTC)

2.2 Beta is Available. Any chance of updating the package? Thanks!

tad commented on 2016-08-10 05:43 (UTC)

I rewrote the package to support 2.2 Beta and its bundled JVM. It can also be installed and run alongside the -beta, -dev, or stable packages.

tad commented on 2016-08-10 02:07 (UTC)

Ideally this wouldn't conflict with the other android-studio packages. Upstream supports multiple channels installed at once as each version uses separate configuration directories. The PKGBUILDs can be modified to install to $pkgname targets instead of $_pkgname and it should be possible to run all versions simultaneously.

lalitm commented on 2016-08-06 06:17 (UTC)

My apologies in the delay. I was on holiday and then became very busy and my co-maintainer is also on holiday. Bumped to latest now.

evana commented on 2016-08-04 08:10 (UTC)

For anyone looking for an updated PKGBUILD, I will be uploading them here:

captain commented on 2016-07-02 13:05 (UTC)

I'm getting the same error too, downgrading to preview3 because of this. Looks like the source for preview 4 is not available too, so I can't tell why does this happen.

skeptikos commented on 2016-06-25 07:54 (UTC)

I'm getting the same error as @sindrenm on my home system as well as my work system. For me the manual download direct from google also works.

sindrenm commented on 2016-05-30 11:55 (UTC) (edited on 2016-05-31 03:26 (UTC) by sindrenm)

I'm not sure if anyone else has this issue after downloading the latest version (2.2 Preview 2, or 2.2.0a2 as it's called in your package), but it doesn't happen when I download the zip file manually and run its binary (bin/ to launch it. Here's a stacktrace for the error: Running /opt/android-studio/bin/ produces the error, but downloading it manually and running <download-location>/bin/ works totally fine. Do you have any idea what could be wrong? EDIT: Interestingly, this seems to work fine on my personal laptop at home. I'll dig more into the problem to try and figure out what the cause of this can be.

evana commented on 2016-05-18 20:15 (UTC)

2.2 Preview 1 was released today at Google I/O

pepo900 commented on 2016-04-14 17:07 (UTC)

Android studio 2.1 Beta has been released yesterday. Any chance of updating the package? Thanks :)

lalitm commented on 2016-04-01 13:56 (UTC)

2.0 RC1 is not a later version than 2.1 Preview 5. Unflagging.

Roach2010 commented on 2016-03-09 18:44 (UTC)

2.1 Preview 1 is also now available.

AlexTes commented on 2016-02-28 09:51 (UTC)

Heads up, the checksum on the new beta is wrong. The windows checksum appears to be the correct linux checksum.

erikryverling commented on 2016-02-17 19:49 (UTC) (edited on 2016-02-17 19:50 (UTC) by erikryverling)

@daveaur I had the same issue with aurget. The obvious reason would be that 'p' comes after 'b' :)

davebloggt commented on 2016-02-07 12:41 (UTC)

For some reason yaourt does not recognise the update from 2.0.0p9 to 2.0.0b2 automatically. If I manually install the new version it warns me about downgrading. I guess there is something wrong with the version numbers.

darkbasic commented on 2016-02-05 19:52 (UTC)

My bad, I just noticed that Arch mounts /tmp on a tmpfs by default :/

darkbasic commented on 2016-02-05 14:01 (UTC) (edited on 2016-02-05 14:01 (UTC) by darkbasic)

I bumped the pkgbuild to beta2 but I still get the "No space left on device" error.

darkbasic commented on 2016-02-05 13:14 (UTC)

I have plenty of free space but I cannot manage to install the SDK. Any idea?

lalitm commented on 2015-12-13 21:14 (UTC)

I don't mind stuff being marked out of date because I get an email notifying me so which is quite helpful as I don't need to constantly check the downloads page. On the other hand, I did have an orphan request after a couple of days a while back which was annoying. Luckily that's only happened once so it's not too bad.

jawz101 commented on 2015-12-13 21:07 (UTC) (edited on 2015-12-13 21:07 (UTC) by jawz101)

Why is this flaagged out of date? That's ridiculous after less than a week. I could go through and flag a bunch of recently updated apps. Seems feverish

richcocoa commented on 2015-12-08 16:52 (UTC)

Android Studio 2 Preview 2 is out: SHA-1 Checksum: f32338e04099d97be254ae0a7d810ab59487c2e9 Thanks for maintaining the package.

lalitm commented on 2015-11-25 14:39 (UTC)

Trying to orphan the package slightly more than a day after it was reported out of date is a bit excessive. Real life takes priority and it's a lot to expect for me to update this package without even a grace period of a few days. Anyway updated now.

@Salamandar having installed the package through an updated PKGBUILD I am not seeing the error you are reporting.

Salamandar commented on 2015-05-30 00:34 (UTC) Hope this is "english" enough, as it is not my first language :p

Salamandar commented on 2015-05-30 00:16 (UTC)

Well, AndroidStudio does not accept a read-only location for the SDK. /opt/android-sdk is not accepted… What the hell Google ??

lalitm commented on 2015-05-30 00:07 (UTC)

@Salamandar Nice find! I'll update the PKGBUILD with this new build.

Salamandar commented on 2015-05-30 00:05 (UTC)

Me neither. It seems that AS now includes the Gradle distribution (until now, it was automatically dl in ~/.gradle). And it's not pleased it's not already included… Found the new build here : Replacing the whole /opt/android-studio with this one works fine.

hazard commented on 2015-05-29 05:16 (UTC)

Unable to upgrade from (141.1903250) to Canary 1.3 Preview 0 (141.1962279) due to conflicts with the patch. Anyone able to get it working?

lalitm commented on 2015-04-23 17:47 (UTC) is the latest build at so I'm removing the out of date flag.

commented on 2015-04-10 10:38 (UTC)

android-sdk should be in optional dependency
