sorry for misunderstanding. i dont have any experience with oracle but i see this from a duckduckgo search:
Code:
sudo apt-get install sqldeveloper-package
http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/938

not sure what sqldeveloper is; i suggested mysql because its much more popular (do they provide the same application; if so it is probaly easier to install).

Interesting. Does MINT use Debian or RPM packages?

mint is based on ubuntu, (in which ubuntu is based on debian).

debian is the grandfather and mint is the grandchild in this analogy.

redhat package modules are useful in rpm based distros such as redhat, fedora, centos, yellowdog, ...

So let me try this again. I have sqldeveloper 4.0.3.16 which I downloaded from Oracle and extracted into my home directory.
I then followed these steps:
Code:
$ cd sqldeveloper
$ ./sqldeveloper.sh
 Oracle SQL Developer

Do you get any of the above or simply the warning?

AFAIK mint should be using .deb packages, afaik it's one of many ubuntu derived distros, which are ultimately derived from debian. Although the package management system might be the only common denominator at this point. There's a package called alien that can convert .rpm's to .deb's. You might try running your command with strace to see what it's hanging on. Maybe with a | grep -i "open" if it's missing something that it blindly expects to be there. And you might check for something more recent from oracle which could make the issue moot.
