I have downloaded jdk-7u25-nb-7_3_1-linux-x64.sh and netbeans-7.3.1-linux.sh.

I installed JDK (which is bundle with NetBeans Base IDE) using

sudo sh jdk-7u25-nb-7_3_1-linux-x64.sh

I chose the installation folder to /opt/jdk_xxx/ and /opt/netbeans_xxx/ (I really wish not to install the program to the home directory), after the installation I don't see any shortcut to lunch the NetBeans IDE.

I also tried to install NetBeans IDE (Full Package) using

sudo sh jdk-7u25-nb-7_3_1-linux-x64.sh

But after the installation I still don't see the shortcut of the program, I also don't know how to create the shortcut by myself.

What to do next? or Have I done anything wrong?

Thanks.
