Installing and starting the H2 database on Ubuntu/Linux Mint

It is a very simple and straightforward task. Download the H2 zip file (for example Version 1.3.176 (2014-04-05), Last Stable).
Open a terminal window
And then run:

unzip h2*.zip
cd h2/bin
chmod +x

This should start the H2 server tool and open a browser window that lets you connect to a database.
