So I recently upgraded from Java 7 to Java 8, when I opened Android Studio, the below message popped up Failed to complete Gradle execution. Supplied JAVA_HOME is not a valid folder. You supplied /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-oracle I was like, “what the heck!” since I already had changed my JAVA_HOME environment variable…
I recently upgraded to Linux Mint 17 “Qiana” and since I did a clean install had to re-configure everything, but anyways don’t want to bore you with my stories. Here is how you set up JAVA_HOME in Linux Mint or any other Linux distribution.
I am using Linux Mint for this guide, and unlike Windows, under Linux you do not have to install any additional drivers. If you are using Ubuntu or Fedora, you need to set up some things for ADB to work. You can follow my Ubuntu or my Fedora guide to set up ADB. With Linux […]
I have been using Linux Fedora for a couple of month and decided that it was time to set it up for Android. I was expecting it to be something like what I did for Ubuntu (Setting Up ADB/USB Drivers for Android Devices in Linux Ubuntu), but it was much easier in Fedora. Just had […]

This laptop in particular comes with premium audio which includes a small subwoofer, (great for watching movies) and to my disappointment, it was not working with Linux. Had to make some […]

As a good and organized computer user, I started looking and asking how to clean this messy looking GRUB and found the solution. Update: Now I know these are the […]
