Install Oracle Instant Client on Ubuntu

1. Download instantclient-basic-linux.x64- and instantclient-sqlplus-linux.x64- and unzip them into /apps/oracle/instantclient_11_2

2. sudo apt-get install libaio1

3. Append the following line into ~/.bashrc

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/apps/oracle/instantclient_11_2
export SQLPATH=~/code/oracle-scripts/scripts:/app/oracle/instantclient_11_2
export TNS_ADMIN=/apps/oracle/instantclient_11_2

No need the TNS_ADMIN if you just want to use easy connect.

4. (optional)
create tnsnames.ora

5. Now sqlplus should works.
sqlplus system/password@oracle_server

This doc help me a lot.
