How to Setup Flutter in Android Studio – Linux

Step 1 : Get the Flutter SDK

1 Download the following installation bundle to get the latest stable release of the Flutter SDK:
2 Download SDK and extract downloaded file, just double click on that. and just copy extracted folder and paste it to your desired location (for example, Documents\flutter).

Step 2 : Update your path

Important:

Path variable needs to be updated to access “flutter” command from terminal. you can just update path variable for current terminal window only. and if you want to access flutter commands from anywhere in terminal, we need to update SDK path permanently.

You’ll probably want to update this variable permanently, so you can run flutter commands in any terminal session. To update PATH variable, we need to open terminal.

export PATH="$PATH:[PATH_TO_FLUTTER_GIT_DIRECTORY]/flutter/bin"
  1. Run source $HOME/. to refresh the current window, or open a new terminal window to automatically source the file.
  2. Verify that the flutter/bin directory is now in your PATH by running:

echo $PATH

Verify that the flutter command is available by running:

which flutter

You are now ready to run Flutter commands in the Flutter Console!
