@omysho thanks for the hint - I've updated the new release to include the license. Please notice that updating using the build in updater is not supported by this AUR package and is also not the intended use.

@onmysho is right, Android Studio's built-in update does fail with validation. I just tried updating from 3.5.2 to 3.5.3 and it complains about the LICENSES. Any support for this?

This package is missing the license/ folder and LICENSE.txt and NOTICE.txt comparing to the one which download from

Which will cause the Android Studio's built-in update fail with validation. Because such files are missing in the install location(/opt/android-studio).

I wonder if there are some reasons to not include the license/ files?

@anty0 you can uninstall the package and delete the rest in /opt/android-studio folder if you want to purge android-studio. If you want to update the package from AUR again it will work without any problem. its not an issue and won't break anything and its better than re downloading the whole IDE again.

@rsplayer No no no :O

Please tell me you are joking.

You realise, that after update like this you can't uninstall or update that package using Pacman? (Actually, you can "uninstall" it, but it would leave garbage in that directory and you would definitely get some warnings during uninstallation.)

Either use package or don't. Using package and then directly messing with its files is really bad practise and I don't recommend anyone doing such thing.

In case you really need quick update - copy whole program directory somewhere to your home directory. Uninstall package android-studio using Pacman. Directly run android studio from your home directory as you would normally do (using bin/

Once you are ready to return to package, just build new version and install.

Note for all users: you don't need to update android studio IDE from AUR package if you had already installed it.

all you need to do is give user access to /opt/android-studio/ folder and then update it, here the steps:

1- run sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /opt/android-studio/

2- Open android studio IDE and update it

3- run sudo chown -R root:root /opt/android-studio/ (set it back to root)

the normal update from IDE will only download necessary files/patches (example from last update: 100Mb)

while the AUR package update will re-download the whole IDE again. (738 MB)

A user of archlinuxcn repo reported that the package should include "which" (which is no longer in base group) as a dependency [1].

I also ran namcap against the package. It reports several missing dependencies [2]. Could you plz check it?

Easiest way is to install aur/jetbrains-toolbox and download and install from there.

just for the masses of users here. if you rely on this software professionally, it might be far easier and quicker to just download the official zip and run and update it from your home. you save hours a year. good bless!
