I am new to Ubuntu so I'm not sure where stuff usually goes. I am pretty sure I have Java 6 installed and working correctly. I have downloaded Aptana Studio 1.5 from their website, unzipped the archive, now it's just sitting on my desktop. I launched the executable from inside the archive and it seems to be working fine.
But there is no "installer", so where should I put the files I just extracted? And how do I create an icon in the applications drop down?
