Use AVD Manager without Starting Android Studio this question is the same as mine, but the answer does nt work for me. There's no executable to launchd AVD manager on my SDK directory (I'm on ubuntu). Could it be that things changed? The only thing I can find is /home/lz/Android/Sdk/tools/bin/avdmanager which is just a command line script, not the GUI that I want to launchd


It is just the android avd command, where the android shell script is in the tools/ directory of your SDK installation.

Or go to the directory and

cd ~/Android/Sdk/tools/bin/ 

Documentation can be found (deprecated) but it works for me https://developer.android.com/studio/tools/help/android.html

I hope it will be useful

    @GuerlandoOCs I believe the GUI is part of Android Studio... – RubberDuck Feb 26 '18 at 10:41
