Thread: Cannot install Netbeans so it Runs

    Default Cannot install Netbeans so it Runs

    I am using OpenSUSE 12.1.

    I have tried to install netbeans several different ways.

    1/ I downloaded netbeans-7.2.1-ml-linux.sh and entered

    sh netbeans-7.2.1-ml-linux.sh

    The installation ran to completion and formed a file called

    ~/netbeans-7.2.1/bin/netbeans

    When I enter ~/netbeans-7.2.1/bin/netbeans at the prompt, there is a delay while nothing happens and the prompt comes back.

    2/ I try to install netbeans-platform using the Software Manager. I select everything that comes up when I enter netbeans in the Find box. Now

    > whereis netbeans

    returns

    /usr/share/netbeans

    which is a directory.

    3/ I use YaST as outlined here. That gives me a netbeans icon among the Applications but clicking on it doesn't do anything.

    4/ I downloaded netbeans-6.8-ml-linux.sh and tried to install netbeans using

    sh netbeans-6.8-ml-linux.sh

    This result was the same as with sh netbeans-7.2.1-ml-linux.sh although the installation appeared to run without a hitch in both cases.

    Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Peter.

    Did you do this ?
    It's working finally. There were two libraries missing: openjdk-src and openjdk-devel, after installing that via yast, everything ok

    I clicked on the menu in the item. It just brought up one of the open windows such as FireFox or the Gnome terminal window. It did not launch netbeans.

    Thanks,

    I fixed the problem. The installation should be

    kdesu su netbeans-7.2.1-ml-linux.sh

    I am wondering as to whether we need that extra "su" after kdesu ?

    Sorry. It should have been sh.

    Thanks,
