Netbeans IDE is an integrated development environment (IDE) for developing with Java, JavaScript, PHP, Python, Ruby, Groovy, C, C++, Scala, Clojure, and other languages.

The NetBeans IDE is written in Java and runs everywhere where a JVM is installed, including Windows, Mac OS, Linux, and Solaris. A JDK is required for Java development functionality, but is not required for development in other programming languages.

Font antialiasing in Netbeans

Based on: http://ibnaziz.wordpress.com/2009/06/10/netbeans-anti-aliasing/

Problem :

For some time now, the newer version of netbeans, no longer displays the “Advanced Options” that allows for anti-aliased fonts. And frankly speaking, the fonts look terrible.

Solution :

Edit the file /usr/share/netbeans/etc/netbeans.conf and add the switches ‘-J-Dswing.aatext=true -J-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on’ to ‘netbeans_default_options’.

GTK look and feel

For change netbeans look and feel to GTK Edit the file /usr/share/netbeans/etc/netbeans.conf and add the switchs ‘--laf com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel’ to ‘netbeans_default_options’.


OpenJDK vs Sun's JDK

Netbeans 7.0-1 will not ALWAYS work with OpenJDK. Some reported issues are:

  • Starting - In some cases, netbeans will not start.
  • Installation - The .sh script provided by netbeans will not launch wizard.

Glassfish server - Can`t download Glassfish server I/O Exception

If you are trying add new Glassfish server, you can`t download the server. Netbeans returns

I/O Exception: http://java.net/download/glassgish/3.0.1/release/glassfish-3.0.1-ml.zip

Solution is:

Netbeans doesn't start after its first start

If you receive a message like this when executing from terminal:

# netbeans -h
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/lib/i386/libsplashscreen.so: libgif.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Netbeans will start using --nosplash option.

# netbeans --nosplash
