Etherpad will not build or run with openjdk-6-jdk or openjdk-6-jre. It also is best to use Sun's jar since fastjar seems to have some issues.

Install packages

Install pre-requisite packages for getting and building Etherpad.

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk scala mysql-server mysql-client libmysql-java mercurial

Get Etherpad code

There are no releases of Etherpad at the moment, so we grab directly from mercurial.

hg clone https://etherpad.googlecode.com/hg/ etherpad

You will need to patch the etherpad code to build on Ubuntu:
