@test0 Those are the terms of the Android SDK, not Studio (which is itself built on IntelliJ IDEA). Non-free code is not distributed in this package.

That said, "apache2" is incorrect; it's actually "multiple".

@jusko Again, this package does not include mksdcard or the emulator, so please see 'android-sdk' and 'android-sdk-build-tools'.

To be able to run emulator you need to symlink libstdc++

$ cd $ANDROID_SDK_HOME/tools/lib64/libstdc++/
$ mkdir old
$ mv * old/
$ ln -s /usr/lib/
$ ln -s /usr/lib/

see semver may vary

Second what terusus pointed out below about mksdcard dependencies. Can't use AVDs otherwise.

test0 commented on 2017-01-14 15:25

Android Studio is not published under Apache license (as claimed in this package file) but under "Android Software Development Kit License Agreement", which is considered a non-free license.

It's important to mention it here because the license tells that "you may not copy (except for backup purposes), modify, adapt, redistribute, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, or create derivative works of the SDK or any part of the SDK", which means that providing this package as part of a custom repository is illegal (due to the way AUR works, it is still legal to share the PKGBUILD file and it is legal to use it in most countries)

@terusus Those are dependencies for the SDK, not for Android Studio itself. See the android-sdk and android-sdk-build-tools packages if you want Arch-packaged SDK tools.

mksdcard relies on additional 32 bit libraries:

It would be a good idea to add them to the dependencies.

The download details are available here.

With some little changes we can install version 2.2.2 from this PKGBUILD. Changes in `PKGBUILD` are as follows:
1. Replace `2.2.1` in `pkgver` and `_pkgver` with `2.2.2`.
2. Set `_build=145.3360264`.
3. Change `sha1sum` entry `'1afb54c3ba7716246ef2cd248bdddd248d1442d4'` with `'fc63ca247762697c33102a78063a95f8b5ab5dea'`.
4. Save the modified `PKGBUILD`.
