Create a file named
AndroidStudio.desktop wherever you want to be able to launch AS from. Paste the following inside it:
[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Name=Android Studio Comment=Android Studio Exec=/path/to/install/studio.sh Path=/path/to/install/ Icon=/path/to/launcher/icon.png Terminal=false Type=Application Categories=Utility;Development;
Obviously, modify the
Icon fields to reflect the proper paths.
