The file is "generated" or "placed there" by sdk-manager. If I install a fresh android-sdk with the sdk-manager, every component/package gets a package.xml and I simply copied it.

A strange effect: every other package (platform, platform-tools, build-tools etc.) has also a package.xml similar to the one for android-emulator, but those packages get noticed by android-studio without the package.xml file. The android-emulator is the only one (I know of) that requires the package.xml file to be noticed by android-studio.

To support android-studio, we have to include a package.xml file and keep it updated - the simplest way would be to download android-emulator with sdk-manager to get the newest package.xml and by the way the link to the android-emulator package. Changes to the given dependencies in a newer package.xml could be reflected by fittng "depends" clauses in the PKGBUILD.

I replied to your email but your email server responded "The certificate is not valid according to the STS policy".

The file seems to include version and dependencies of the package, so simply including it won't work when the package is updated. Do you know where the file is from/generated?

I created a patch which includes the missing package.xml and mailed it to the maintainer. I hope he sees the email after noticing this comment.

For some reason ths package doesnt have package.xml inside them so after installing Android Studio doesn't see it.

Android Studio 3.4 does not find the emulator when you go to Tools > AVD manager.

It was working fine in Android Studio 3.3 - do you know why?

I'm wondering the same thing as @Kppqju77. I ended up uninstalling this package and just using the Android Studio version.

How do I make android studio recognize the fact that there is an emulator installed? I don't have any issues with other packages in /opt/android-sdk/...

@dreamingincode: I'm sorry. I checked that file as well: There's also a 28.0.+ node in there. Now I checked, the SDK manager still shows 27.3.10. I wonder what is the detail I missed.

Please check out (which is what Android Studio checks update from) before flagging this package out of date.

All ELF binary files in this package are now 64-bit (checked by the command find -type f | xargs file | grep ELF). I think it's time to drop i686 related lines from PKGBUILD.
