Installing the Oracle Instant Client on Ubuntu/Debian based systems is awkward since Oracle is RPM centric regarding its Linux support.
What's the best way to easily install and configure the Instant Client on Ubuntu?

You can download a script from my oracle_instant_client_for_ubuntu Github repo which will convert Oracle rpms into Ubuntu compatible packages and then install them for you.
It now supports multiple versions of the instant client. Feel free to log issues via Github.
Currently, this project only supports 64-bit systems.
