Download and installation

Download the source :

# cd /usr/local/
# wget http://portswigger.net/suite/burpsuite_v1.2.01.zip
# unzip burpsuite_v1.2.01.zip
# mv burpsuite_v1.2.01 burpsuite

Create an executable file to automate the launch of BurpSuite :

# cd /usr/local/burpsuite/
# vim burpsuite

Use the following commands:

cd /usr/local/burpsuite/
/usr/bin/java -jar -Xmx200m ./burpsuite_v1.2.01.jar
Replace 200m with the amount of memory (in megabytes) to allocate for BurpSuite. If this is insufficient, the tab "Alert" will give you a message.

Make the file executable:

# chmod +x /usr/local/burpsuite/burpsuite

Finally, create a symbolic link in /usr/bin:

# cd /usr/bin
# ln -s /usr/local/burpsuite/burpsuite burpsuite

To start burpsuite, just open the Run window (ALT + F2) on Ubuntu and then enter "burpsuite"
