Oracle SQL Developer 2.1.1 Installation in Ubuntu 9.10

September 9, 2010 1 comment

1. Go to Oracle site

2. Download appropriate SQL Developer distribution file based on your machine requirements. In my case I selected Oracle SQL Developer for 32-bit Windows (though I’m using an Ubuntu box)

3. Extract the file to your desired folder

4. Launch terminal, go to your extracted file and type: bash

This will ask for the path/directory of your  java installation. I continue by inputting: /usr/lib/jvm/<java folder>

At this point your SQL Developer 2.1.1. should already launch and should enable you to create new connections to your DB. 😉


To launch your SQL Developer again, clicking the file should do this for you. In any case it won’t work,

1. Right click on the .sh file, go to Properties

2. Enable ‘Allow executing file as program’
