Installing PHPStorm on Ubuntu 11.10 with SUN JDK

  • PHPStorm is a nice ( but not free ) IDE  and we decided to use it in our development environment.
  • Installs nicely in Windows and Mac.
  • However, Ubuntu 11.10 is the problem as it does not have SUN JDK by default.

Requirements:

  1. Ubuntu 11.10
  2. PHPStorm 3
  3. PHPStorm only runs on SUN JDK ( and not openjdk that comes default with Ubuntu 11.10 )
  4. We need to install SUN JDK and then update java alternatives
  5. See my post on how to install SUN JDK https://naveensnayak.wordpress.com/2012/02/12/install-latest-sun-jdk-on-ubuntu-11-10/
  6. After installing SUN JDK  – just go to PHPStorm/bin and run the PhpStorm.sh
