AVD Manager missing in Android Studio

This question has been asked before for WINDOWS, but I can't find an answer for Linux.

My AVD Manager is greyed out (button) on the Android Studio bar. The 'Android' menu is also missing from Tools. Thus, I can't run an app on an emulator.

My downloaded SDK for 17 is in: ~/android-sdk/, but the package manager that downloads APIs from Google has put 22 in ~/Android/Sdk/. Both have the tools directory, and both can launch the AVD Manager from the command line.

But, I can't figure out how to make these show up in Android Studio so I can compile, launch, and test APKs against different versions on the emulator.

I feel like there is an environment variable that is not set, but can't seem to figure out which one it is.

How do I fix this?

You need to enable AVD manager command group in eclipse.

I think Android Design Studio is a fork of Eclipse, and the Windows are not exactly the same. However, that being said, I have always had these two buttons and they are greyed out:
Button, button, who's got the button?

It should be under "window" menu...
