I downloaded Aptana stand alone version. Now I am on Ubuntu, but can not find any guide for installation. If you helped me, that would be great.
If you downloaded standalone version you can place Aptana Studio in whatever Folder you wish and invoke it by double clicking in the AptanaStudio3 icon as shown in the next screenshot:
Optionally you can move the extracted folder and it contents to your local programs folder
gksudo nautilus or via terminal but I think it is not needed unless you wish to invoke it via terminal.
If you wish to add an Application Icon to your Applications list from the Unity Launcher (or any other launcher like Synapse) you can simply create a
.desktop file with the next contents on it:
[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Name=AptanaStudio3 Comment=Aptana Studio 3 Exec=/home/geppettvs/Documents/Aptana_Studio_3/AptanaStudio3 Icon=/home/geppettvs/Documents/Aptana_Studio_3/icon.xpm Terminal=false Type=Application Categories=Application;
And place it inside of the ~/.local/share/applications/ folder. Remember to change the folder where AptanaStudio3 and its Icon resides in order to make it work properly.
1) First, unzip aptana in your home directory.
2) Move the Aptana folder to /opt
sudo mv aptana /opt/
3) Create the desktop configuration file
sudo sublime aptana.desktop
...and paste this:
[Desktop Entry] Name=Aptana Studio 3 Type=Application Exec=env UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0 aptana Terminal=false Icon=aptana Comment=Integrated Development Environment NoDisplay=false Categories=Development;IDE; Name[en]=Aptana Studio 3
4) Run this file:
sudo desktop-file-install aptana.desktop
5) Create symlink and copy icon:
sudo ln -s /opt/aptana/AptanaStudio3 /usr/local/bin/aptana sudo cp /opt/aptana/icon.xpm /usr/share/pixmaps/aptana.xpm
6) Give the user the permissions of access to configuration settings:
sudo chown -R YOUR_USERNAME:YOUR_USERNAME /opt/aptana/configuration/org.eclipse.osgi
N.B. The folder org.eclipse.osgi may not exist then it will create after the first Aptana launch.
If everything is done right then the Aptana icon will be available in Dash menu.
