To install SBT on Ubuntu first you need to make sure Java 8 jdk is installed or not, to install java 8 jdk in your OS use this command in your terminal:

sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk

Next, you should check your Java is installed or not in your system, to check which version of Java is installed in your system check with this command:

javac -version

If not installed then you can follow this:

After you are done with the Java installation you can install Scala with the help of this command in your terminal:


It will install Scala in your system and check to Scala has installed in your Ubuntu use this command:

scala -version

This will show which version of Scala you are using.

Now to install SBT you need to use this command in your terminal:

sudo yum install sbt

After installing you need to create a directory for SBT where the project will be created, for that you need to use this command:

mkdir sbt_project 
cd sbt_project 

Inside sbt_project you need to give sbt (which will download will the necessary files for sbt)

Once you see sbt: sbt_project command prompt in your terminal, that means your SBT has installed properly.

Hope it helps.
