Arduino IDE crashes on Ubuntu 14.04 Java Error

I posted in Stackoverflow here Arduino IDE crashes on Ubuntu 14.04 Java Error - Stack Overflow

I just downloaded Arduinoe ID 1.6.8 from arduino.cc .
Placed it in home folder
Then ran command ./arduino .

The Error that occurred:

java.lang.NoSuchMethodError:

org.apache.commons.compress.utils.IOUtils.closeQuietly(Ljava/io/Closeable;)V
at processing.app.helpers.PreferencesMap.load(PreferencesMap.java:76)
at processing.app.PreferencesData.init(PreferencesData.java:53)
at processing.app.BaseNoGui.initParameters(BaseNoGui.java:993)
at processing.app.Base.guardedMain(Base.java:159)
at processing.app.Base.main(Base.java:137)

It looks like it has something to do with loading the preferences file or creating it. You might try using the Arduino IDE in portable mode by creating a folder named portable inside of the Arduino IDE installation folder.
