RubyMine on Ubuntu won't start trial

Hello, I was trying RubyMine on Ubuntu 12.04 for the first time and I'm getting the following error

[Downloads] $ tar xfz RubyMine-6.0.2.tar.gz
[Downloads] $ cd RubyMine-6.0.2/bin/
[bin] $ ./

How do I set a trial license?

Self answer, I missed this part on the download page

Oracle JDK 1.6. (OpenJDK is not supported)

To update you can follow this guide:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

I had to additionally run

sudo update-alternatives --config java

and select the new java

Now it launches :)
