Installing Jmeter for Ubuntu 11.10

Been playing with Jmeter running in Ubuntu 11.10, The first thing I needed to do was install Jmeter. I started running the following command to install Jmeter.

sudo apt-get install jmeter

This installs Jmeter but unfortunatly version 2.3.4 while I wanted to do some stuff with version 2.6. So I download the current .tgz binary files from the web and used tar -zxvf *.tgz to extract out the files. Unlike the windows version where you can just click the jmeter.bat file you need to change the permission on the jmeter shell file. This requires chmod +xX jmeter on the jmeter file. Finally from the terminal just type jmeter and it starts!
