I had some strange issues on my notebook where NetBeans hangs some times and also some dialog items are missing. I tried various things (ugrading to jre-7, switching to oracle jre, other versions of Netbeans - anything from 7.0 to 7.3) but nothing helped.
Today I updated my main PC (both are under 12.04 64bit) and it suddenly shows the same problems. So the problem must be connected to the update. I had a look at the dpkg.log and saw, that I got a new openjdk version.
cat /var/log/dpkg.log 2013-07-31 12:38:19 configure openjdk-6-jre 6b27-1.12.6-1ubuntu0.12.04.2 <none> 2013-07-31 12:38:19 status unpacked openjdk-6-jre 6b27-1.12.6-1ubuntu0.12.04.2 2013-07-31 12:38:19 status half-configured openjdk-6-jre 6b27-1.12.6-1ubuntu0.12.04.2 2013-07-31 12:38:19 status installed openjdk-6-jre 6b27-1.12.6-1ubuntu0.12.04.2 2013-07-31 12:38:19 configure openjdk-6-jdk 6b27-1.12.6-1ubuntu0.12.04.2 <none> 2013-07-31 12:38:19 status unpacked openjdk-6-jdk 6b27-1.12.6-1ubuntu0.12.04.2 2013-07-31 12:38:19 status half-configured openjdk-6-jdk 6b27-1.12.6-1ubuntu0.12.04.2 2013-07-31 12:38:20 status installed openjdk-6-jdk 6b27-1.12.6-1ubuntu0.12.04.2
So I reverted the update using:
apt-cache showpkg openjdk-6-jre apt-get install openjdk-6-jre=6b24-1.11.1-4ubuntu2
But the problem still persists. Has anybody ever had a similiar problem or an idea to resolve this?
Best regards, Malte
* EDIT *
I just saw that
java -version still shows
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.12.6) (6b27-1.12.6-1ubuntu0.12.04.2) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.0-b12, mixed mode)
So it seems the downgrade didn't work out. Do I need to downgrade any other packages?
I'm unable to install a 6b24 package of
