I am using Ubuntu 11.04.

I have installed the JDK.

I have now downloaded phpStorm which was a tar.gz.

After extraction I have /bin /lib etc.

I know I can run /bin/phpstorm.sh.

But Where am I meant to put the phpstorm folder? What permissions do I need to set?

I use Intellij IDEA, a similar product on Ubuntu. Basically, you can put it wherever you want. I just made a folder "IDEA" in /home/username. Then I added it to .bashrc (seems silly to add it to path for just that one executable), something like this:

alias "idea"="cd /home/username/IDEA/bin; ./idea.sh"

Im going to seem really dumb here, but does adding the alias mean you can do something like idea myfile.php to have it open in IDEA? –  Hailwood Apr 13 '11 at 21:19
    
@Hailwood it should =) Please accept the answer if there's nothing else. –  Erik Kronberg Apr 17 '11 at 19:01
