31.28 Flutter Install Linux


The Ubuntu guide to an initial install on Ubuntu begins with a snap install:

sudo snap install flutter --classic

Running the flutter command will then initialise the installation.


If you will be targeting Android devices then you will need (to be confirmed 20220209):

sudo snap install androidsdk
sudo snap install android-studio --classic
flutter config --android-studio-dir /snap/android-studio/current/android-studio
flutter doctor --android-licenses

For the latest developer version of flutter:

flutter channel dev
flutter upgrade

Ensure support for desktop application development:

flutter config --enable-linux-desktop
flutter config --enable-macos-desktop
flutter config --enable-windows-desktop

Check everything is okay:

flutter doctor

To then create, build, and run a sample linux desktop application named button, specifying the target device id with -d:

mkdir button
cd button
flutter create .
flutter run -d linux
