sudo apt-get remove scala-library scala
sudo dpkg -i scala-2.11.4.deb

# sbt installation
# remove sbt:> sudo apt-get purge sbt.
sudo dpkg -i sbt-0.13.6.deb
sudo apt-get update

you should change to - scala-2.10.2.tgz


Thanks, nazar-art!


I am looking for a good way of doing this and I prefer the solutions based on update-alternatives. Also your solution doesn't include the man pages. Thanks for sharing though :)


Nice script. By now there is an official .deb package at


I do not get it.. above script indeed uses the same .deb package you mentioned. So what is the difference ? Thx


Please update the sbt:

sudo dpkg -i sbt-0.13.5.deb


Thanks @javadba and @chenrui333


Thank you !!!...
This is much easier than change system variable manually :)


Thanks! After installing this way though, I get duplicate sources.list entries... is anyone else getting that when doing an sudo apt-get update?


Thanks for idea.

I've made some changes to this script for using java7 dependency instead of java6:
It may be useful for someone.


Hey, you've already installed scala and sbt using the deb packages, why do you follow that with "apt-get install" of these packages?


scala: scala-2.11.6.deb
sbt: sbt-0.13.8.deb
