The command menu of Aptana Studio 3 is not showing in a Ubuntu 14.04.

enter image description here

Other menu items are working fine. Can anybody suggest a solution for this issue?

Had the same issues here. Solved it by installing the Jave RE from Oracle. Downloaded the archive from the Oracle site and then followed the procedure as described below.

  • Extract the folder from the archive.
  • Copy the folder to /opt/Oracle_Java/ (I had do create this folder).
  • Run the following commands. (Note: Make sure to change the VERSION according to the version you download from Oracle).

    sudo update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/java" "java" "/opt/Oracle_Java/jre1.8.0_VERSION/bin/java" 1
    sudo update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/javaws" "javaws" "/opt/Oracle_Java/jre1.8.0_VERSION/bin/javaws" 1 
    
  • Then run these commands:

    sudo update-alternatives --set "java" "/opt/Oracle_Java/jre1.8.0_VERSION/bin/java"
    sudo update-alternatives --set "javaws" "/opt/Oracle_Java/jre1.8.0_VERSION/bin/javaws" 
    

After installing Java, you can run Aptana.

You should start Aptana with export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0. I use a small script to start it (make sure to adapt the path):

#!/bin/bash
export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0
/path/to/Aptana_Studio_3/AptanaStudio3
