  • I am using Flutter 0.9.4 • channel beta
  • Android Studio 3.2.1

Whenever I try to debug and run my app it shows following error msg:

answered question

Could not find lint-gradle-api.jar (com.android.tools.lint:lint-gradle-api:26.1.2).... This means the repositories section of your Gradle file could not download this file...

I get that but how to fix it :D

Do you have google() listed in your repositories? Based on the error, looks like you only have jcenter()

Thank You so much. Indeed google() was missing.

try this from flutter ducomentation:

Update your path

If you wish to run Flutter commands in the regular Windows command prompt, take these steps to add Flutter to the PATH environment variable:

  • Go to

“Control Panel > User Accounts > User Accounts > Change my environment variables”

  • Under “User variables” check if there is an entry called “Path”:

  • If the entry does exist, append the full path to flutter\bin using ; as a separator from existing values.

  • If the entry does not exist, create a new user variable named Path with the full path to flutter\bin as its value. Reboot Windows to fully apply this change.
