SQLDeveloper with Ubuntu 12.04, alien and the .rpm-file

Posted on 30. September 2013 Comments

There are a couple of tutorials[1] of how to install Oracles SQLDeveloper and they all say to install the sqldeveloper-XXX-no-jre.zip, in this case sqldeveloper-3.2.20.09.87-no-jre.zip. I didn’t read it because my first idea was the following and it also worked: It’s possible to download the .rpm-file and convert it with alien. You might have to install it with

sudo apt-get install alien

then

alien sqldeveloper-3.2.20.09.87-1.noarch.rpm
dpkg -i sqldeveloper_3.2.20.09.87-2_all.deb

You can then start the sqldeveloper. It will ask you for the Java Path which is usually /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk and give you some kind of error, which didn’t seem to have any impact.

repat@laptop:~$ sqldeveloper
