Before installing Aptana, the PHP IDE, install Git and Java.
sudo apt-get install git
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.
- Download Aptana from the official website.
- Extract the .zip file into a directory for the current user.
- Double click on AptanaStudio3 (diamond icon) to run the installation.

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: /home/nadjib/Aptana_Studio_3/plugins/com.aptana.swt.webkitbrowser.linux.x86_64_18.104.22.1687568602/ 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.
