Installing Phalcon Developer Tools 1.3.1 in Ubuntu 13.10 / 14.04

Installing developer tools requires slightly more effort.
Download phalcon-developer-tools package here: 
         https://github.com/phalcon/phalcon-devtools 
Extract it to some convenient path.
Via git : 
        git clone git://github.com/phalcon/phalcon-devtools.git 
Install and create a phalcon symlink:
       cd phalcon-devtools
       sudo ./phalcon.sh
Create a symbolink link to the phalcon.php script, replace this with the right path:

      alias phalcon="/home/sherwinrobles/phalcon-devtools/phalcon.php"
Remember to restart the console to reload the environment variables. Let’s try it out by listing available commands. 

       phalcon commands
Gives me this error:
     PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/lib/php5/20121212/phalcon.so' - /usr/lib/php5/20121212/phalcon.so: undefined symbol: php_pdo_get_dbh_ce in Unknown on line 0
ERROR: Phalcon extension isn't installed, follow these instructions to install it: http://docs.phalconphp.com/en/latest/reference/install.html

Solution:

Instead of php.ini it looks for phalcon extension in /etc/php5/cli/conf.d/ & /etc/php5/apache2/conf.d/ folder.

You need to load PDO first before Phalcon.
The ini file that loads phalcon should be prefixed to a number higher than the one PDO is. So in my system I have:
          /etc/php5/cli/conf.d/50-phalcon.ini 
         /etc/php5/apache2/conf.d/50-phalcon.ini 

Create each and paste this: extension=phalcon.so 
Find loaded php.ini with these commands. 

           sudo php -i | grep 'Configuration File'                

           Configuration File (php.ini) Path => /etc/php5/cli               
           Loaded Configuration File => /etc/php5/cli/php.ini


Remove the line "extension = phalcon.so" if you previously add this from the main php.ini file
Congratulations you now have Phalcon tools installed!
