My java 3d project using netbeans is running fine in my windows environment. But when I run project in Ubuntu 12.04 it shows this exception:

java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no J3D in java.library.path

This is because I don't know how to install and configure Java 3D in Ubuntu.

I tried

sudo apt-get install libjava3d-java

Welcome to AskUbuntu. You seem to be missing the path to the J3D library. Are you using an IDE or compiling from the command line? – Luís de Sousa Nov 23 '13 at 9:25
Thanks Luís. I'm using Netneans 6.9.1 ide. – Akshay Raut Nov 25 '13 at 5:37

Go to NetBeans and open your project, then right click on the Libraries folder and select Add JAR/Folder.... In the menu that shows up navigate to /usr/share/java, select the j3d jars and click OK. Now try to recompile your project, the missing library errors should be gone.
