Aptana Studio Installation
Create a temporary working directory and download the installation zip file
> cd > mkdir aptana > cd aptana/ > wget https://github.com/aptana/studio3/releases/download/v3.6.1/Aptana_Studio_3_Setup_Linux_x86_3.6.1.zip
Install unzip if it is not alreadyinstalled and unzip the installation file.
> sudo apt-get install unzip > unzip Aptana_Studio_3_Setup_Linux_x86_3.6.1.zip
Move the unzipped directory to /opt/ and start desktop if it is not yet started.
> mv Aptana_Studio_3 /opt/ > startx
The following prompt should appear
Start Aptana – got two errors
When starting Aptana, got two errors
- “we were unable to load the Chromimum browser…”
Search the web and cannot find anything about “Chromimum” browser – hence conclude that it is a typo – shoud be “Chromium” browser and proceed to install the browser.
In addition, follow the link to the troubleshooting guide, the null point exception may be caused by missing pre-prequisities and environment variables
Install Chromium Browser
Straight forward installation
> apt-get update > apt-get install chromium
Please note that Chromium Browser cannot start by root user – it makes sense that Aptana Studio should be started from other user credential – not as root.
Install additional pre-requisities
> apt-get install libjpeg62 libwebkitgtk-1.0-0
Restart desktop and Aptana – issues resolved.
