Gradle installation in Ubuntu

28 / Jan / 2015 by Navkrishna 2 comments

In this post we are going to learn about Gradle installation in Ubuntu 14.04.

1. Open terminal and execute this command to install Gradle
$ sudo apt-get install gradle

This command will set the path variables automatically. And, you are ready to work with Gradle.


2. Download Gradle from the official website and extract it in a directory. In my case it is

Set environment path variable GRADLE_HOME. To set this path open terminal and open /etc/profile
$ sudo gedit /etc/profile

This will open profile file in gedit. Add following lines after the last line

export PATH

Replace GRADLE_HOME path with your Gradle installation path.

Save file and close gedit. Restart the system. Open terminal and type
$ gradle -v

the output would be similar to this

Gradle 2.2.1

    I found I had to put the GRADLE_HOME before $PATH, otherwise the old 1.4 version of gradle gets picked 1st.

    Also, using Windows Bash Shell, I had to edit the .bashrc instead of /etc/profile.

    But otherwise, very helpful, thankyou.
