the correct command for launching the IDE is:

$ ubuntu-sdk-ide

instead of

$ ubuntu-sdk

Thanks XiaoGuo,

As far as I know (at least, that's what I've been told when the *-ide package appeared) the "ubuntu-sdk" will keep working and should be the default.

I'll ask someone from the SDK team for confirmation.

The instructions on the website are not enough to get an SDK installed. On a clean Ubuntu Desktop, the following command:

$sudo apt update && sudo apt install ubuntu-sdk

will get the ubuntu-sdk installed

and the following command:

$ sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade

will remove the "ubuntu-sdk" and "ubuntu-sdk-ide" will get installed. However, "ubuntu-sdk-dev" is never installed. That is the kit for "Ubuntu SDK Desktop Kit".

Best regards,
