Install Rapidminer in Linux (ubuntu)

Installing rapid miner in Linux is a little bit different than it in Windows. Also according to the descriptions of official website, this method could be used any platform. (My Linux distr is Ubuntu 12.04)

The first step is to install java. Open terminal first, and enter and execute these commands one by one. 

sudo apt-get purge openjdk*
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

In the installing process, the system will ask whether to continue, please just enter "y" to continue. 

After java is installed, download Rapidminer  form the its website. Please choose the right version shwon in picture below. Usually, they could detect the system automatically, if not, please choose the proper one, and download. 

After download, choose a destination folder to unzip the downloaded file. I extracted it in the "download" folder. 

After step, please click the extracted folder, and find the file named "rapidminer.jar"

Please do not double click it to open directly. Right click this file--> "open with oracle java 7 runtime", then rapid miner will be ran. Then interface is as same as it in other os.
