Install Aptana Studio in Ubuntu Hardy Heron (8.04)

Today I have upgraded to Hardy Heron. It was a clean and fresh install. However, the most painful part after the upgrade was the installation of Aptana Studio 1.1.

The installation in Hardy Heron is pretty easy actually. You can just extract the zipped file (Aptana_Studio_Setup_Linux.zip) virtually anywhere. To fire up the application, just double-click the AptanaStudio. It does run, but I got this error message:

Embedded browser not available..bla bla bla

It took me several hours in order to find out the solution for that error. It was very frustrating actually when in the end, installing Firefox 2 solved the problem!

Yeah guys, I think the error is caused by the default web browser (Firefox 3 Beta 5) in Hardy Heron. So how to install Firefox 2? Just install it from the repositories. But you don't have to uninstall the Firefox 3 Beta 5.

If you have the same luck as mine, your Aptana Start Page tab will show something like this after that:

Good luck!
