First and first, I had Netbeans installed on my laptop when it was on 12.04 but after I upgraded it to 13.04 and could not find it on my dash so thought it was removed on upgrade.

I tried to reinstall it using the .sh file from they're official website and then I found out that it was already installed so I uninstalled it from my laptop and tried to again to install it(so it would be a fresh install),but when the installer came out it told me that "All components are installed".

After that I tried cleaning my system with ubuntu tweak's janitor and tried again but yet the problem persisted, and after this I manual deleted any directories/files related to netbeans(searched the directories/files with nautilus) and yet the problem is still there.

When the installer start(without errors), it simply says:"All components are installed" and the "Next" button is deactivated.

I installed Netbeans 7.0.1 from software center but I would want to install the latest version.

Any clues/tips/help?

  • sudo apt-get --purge remove netbeans[fullVersionOrSomething] and then install from your downloaded latest version.

  • Download Netbeans from https://netbeans.org/downloads/
  • Make sure you have Java version installed: Type this command in a Terminal:

    java -version You should get should get an output similar to this:

java version "1.7.0_21" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_21-b11) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.21-b01, mixed mode)

  • Next install Netbeans: chmod +x netbeans-7.3-javase-linux.sh;
  • Launch installer ./netbeans-7.3-javase-linux.sh
  • If you want to install it in /opt launch it with sudo: sudo ./netbeans-7.3-javase-linux.sh

  • I don`t understand you! Do you want to install it system wide and for all user or simply for yourself? If so than use the sh file without sudo.

This is what worked for me: remove the ~./nbi directory.

1) open terminal

2) rm -r ~/.nbi

Hope it helps.
