I ran into an issue with UI scaling after upgrading to all the icons were huge. I fixed this by going to "Help" -> "Edit Custom VM Options..." and adding -Dhidpi=false. Maybe this will help someone.

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.

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`.

Running into issues with emulator. Had to follow to get it working correctly.

I've updated the package to match the -beta and -canary packages, so maintaining this should be easier going forward.

Updated to 2.2.1.

danyf90, adding co-maintaners would be great for everybody, bringing Android Studio stable updates and PKGBUILD fixes faster. User tuxfusion seems to be willing to collaborate, and user tad from android-studio-beta[1] might also.

As the JDK is now integrated with the IDE, you can remove it from the deps to opt deps, for optional external JDK. And only depend on java-environment for i686.

@danyf90 @hewllowworld1 my better solution was to downgrade hahahaha! I was on the clock and needed a project done for yesterday.

Anyway, the solution appointed by @hellowworld1 fixed it. I removed the old directory and started from 0. Everything works now.
