Android Studio Installation Questions
I'm all about learning from mistakes, but at this point after going through so many steps installing Eclipse for both this course and the Stanford 106A, I'm tired of burning hours on just the tools.
So, I installed Studio, and my first project told me that I had a "blank space". Internet reading told me this would lead to further horror, and it seemed (from reading) that since I'm on a computer that I inherited where the files I use daily are under "New User" that could be the problem.
Well, hells. I transferred the file to a spot on my main drive because it was a place I could access from another user name I created that could load the thing, as just changing the user name didn't actually change the names of the paths. (I am coding on an old machine that I don't have enough memory where I trust it won't die if I dual-partition and set up something in Linux). It did open there--error message disappeared, but SDK is missing. I'm between jobs, and since I live 2 blocks from the library--I don't have internet at home. Which, is another question, because what I did get to open appeared to tell me that gradle can be run offline--but I'm wondering how THAT would affect things.
The solutions on the web to the blank space thing all had to do with cryptic ways to handle in gradle, but since this is my first experience with Studio--I had no clue. I do all my courses offline with iTunes, and if I do it under this created user name, I'm just stuck transferring all the videos to this new identity--thinking there must be an easier way
So, I'm back to try make everything work. Also, the video said that the correct file to open was the 'studio64', and I'm wondering if that is the correct thing if your machine is not 64. There are a few executable files in the download.
I know this is too long of a post, but I didn't know how to address everything in a shorter way.
