I have upgraded to ubuntu 12.04.

I downloaded netbeans from the netbeans site with a .sh file. Followed the instructions chmode +x <filename.sh> .. no response. It required me to update JDK and JRE. Yet I am not able to find the netbeans IDE application. Am I missing something ? Please help. Setting a foot into netbeans from eclipse but almost stuck.

personal preference, stick with eclipse. it's more standard and more mature. if there's a particular plugin available for netbeans that isn't available for eclipse post a separate question on that and i'll see what i can do –  hbdgaf Jun 9 '12 at 23:38
    
i want to help this guy, but netbeans is imo an eclipse clone that fails at everything except RAD for java guis...i need a finer point on what he's trying to accomplish -- quote of me from chat –  hbdgaf Jun 9 '12 at 23:42
    
What is the error msg when you execute the shellscript, i.e., what happens when you run ./<filename.sh> in bash? –  Marcos Roriz Junior Jun 14 '12 at 6:13

After you have made the installer executable (chmod +x netbeans-blabalbla.sh) you need to run it. Otherwise netbeans won't be installed. The command you have issued only makes the installer runnable. You can also install netbeans via sudo apt-get install netbeans but then you get an older version.

Copy the .sh file to the home directory and in terminal enter

chmod +x netbeans-blabalbla.sh

After that go to the netbeans file in home directory and double click and select run in terminal. This procedure worked for me.
