First Download the apache-maven-3.0.5-bin.tar.gz from the http://maven.apache.org/download.cgi website.
Then go to the downloaded folder and extract the downloaded bundle using the following command.
Then copy that folder where ever you want in your computer. In this example I copy it to my home folder.
-R apache-maven-3.0.5 /home/
Then the final step is to create the symbolic link to the maven executable. Use the following command to create the symbolic link.
sudo ln -s /home/aruna//apache-maven-3.0.5/bin/mvn /usr/bin/mvn
Now you are almost done and execute the following command to check the installation.
Then you'll probably get the following output.
Apache Maven 3.0.5 (r01de14724cdef164cd33c7c8c2fe155faf9602da; 2013-02-19 19:21:28+0530) Maven home: /home/aruna/apache-maven-3.0.5 Java version: 1.6.0_45, vendor: Sun Microsystems Inc.
