I have a dual boot Acer Aspire One Netbook with Eclipse running on the Windows partition.
Now I want to try Android Studio on the Ubuntu Linux partition.
Here are the steps involved.
In a terminal window switch to root with "sudo su". Then type: "export JAVA_HOME=usr/lib/jvm/java-openjdk-i386.
Navigate to the directory android-studio/bin and type "./studio.sh"
