Creating Android Simulator on Linux and Android Studio

Install Android Studio. I installed it from Ubuntu Software because when trying to install directly from Android Studio website I had some problems getting icon.

Open Android Studio.

Click Configure > AVD Manager

Click + Create Virtual Device...

Choose any phone.

Install System Image by clicking Download next to any Release Name.

Select installed release and click Next

These can stay as they are unless you want to change something. Click Finish
