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:

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 switchs ‘-J-Dswing.aatext=true -J-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on’ to ‘netbeans_default_options’.
