Before installing Aptana, the PHP IDE, install Git and Java.

Install Git

sudo apt-get install git

Install Java

See separate instructions on installing the Java JDK in Java/Install as openJDK is not currently supported you must manually install a Sun/Oracle JVM. Only the Java JRE is required, but you might as well install the JDK to do some Java programming as well as PHP.

Install Aptana

  1. Download Aptana from the official website.
  2. Extract the .zip file into a directory for the current user.
  3. Double click on AptanaStudio3 (diamond icon) to run the installation.

More on installation from Aptana official instructions.

When getting the following error, upon running Aptana for the first time:

An internal error has occurred.
No more handlesNative code library failed to load. (java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: 
os/linux/x86_64/libcefjni.so: libjpeg.so.62: 
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

Close Aptana and re-open it. It's a poor solution but that seems to work every time.
