I had to install Android studio in /opt fedora 25. I don't want to run it using sudo for various reasons. Right now I'm not setting a root password because of that.

I'm not sure if I should change /opt permissions to 755 or if there's a better option.

I see the following if I try make my account password protected and run Android studio without sudo

OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM warning: ignoring option MaxPermSize=350m; support was removed in 8.0

    Why would you need a sudo to run it? What happens if you run it without sudo? – Jakuje Jan 28 '17 at 9:42

    There is nothing like "protection by sudo". What errors do you see? – Jakuje Jan 28 '17 at 9:45
  • @Jakuje please check my edit – Lynob Jan 28 '17 at 11:14
  • Did you try to click Next and "select an existing SDK"? – Jakuje Jan 28 '17 at 12:01
  • @Jakuje sure but it won't find it, in fact the first time I installed it, I didn't know that it was an issue, even the sdk manager won't work properly. I'm thinking of 755 permissions changing permissions isn't the best idea – Lynob Jan 28 '17 at 12:22

I ran sudo chown -R user:user folder on /opt/android-studio and on /root/Android/Sdk and on my project folder which I generated using android studio with root privileges.

Plus I moved /root/Android/Sdk to ~/Android/Sdk because android studio IDE cannot see the SDK if it's located in /root
