If Android Studio complains saying Java not found then you need to help Android Studio locate your JVM by setting the
STUDIO_JDK environment variable.
To find your installed JDK execute
You should see similar output to the following
If your on an older version of Mac OS X then you can try navigating to the default location to find your JDK path
Once you have found your JDK path, you can immediately set your
STUDIO_JDK variable by executing the
launchctl command with your JDK path.
launchctl setenv STUDIO_JDK /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_71.jdk
Paste it into your
.profile to run the command automatically at startup.
cd ~ vi .profile launchctl setenv STUDIO_JDK /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_71.jdk
Source it to have your changes take effect immediately
launchctl instead of
export to set
STUDIO_JDK will allow Android Studio to be launched from the OS X GUI interface. If set with
export, you would have to open Android Studio from the command line using the
open command. If your using Zsh then paste the launchctl line in your
.zshrc file instead.
