Ah thanks Mark that pointed me in the right direction :)

I think I followed the instructions correctly but  the
~/android/android-sdk-linux directory was missing. I created a symlink
~/android/android-sdk-linux -> ~/Android/Sdk/ which is were Android
Studio appears to be saving them by default. It's still building but has
got past were it failed last time.
