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?

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...

Usually the buttons grey out because Android Studio is not able identify the android sdk installation in the machine. Since you downloaded 17 and Studio is trying to use 22, this could be the cause of your problem. Close and relaunch Android Studio in administrator mode. You will see a green notification on top right saying "android framework is identified" Click on the configure link on that notification. Studio will start configuring the android sdk . The buttons should now be visible.

@Michael Munger. Android Studio is nothing to do with Eclipse. It is a fork of Intellij from jetbrains. Personally I use eclipse
