I don't know if this is a netbeans or Ubuntu or Java problem. But I'm running Ubuntu 13.10 64bit, and trying to create a jar file from my java application that I've created with Netbeans IDE 7.0.1.

This is what happens when pressing the "Clean and Build" button

/home/jeggy/Skjøl/NetBeansProjects/KTEditor/nbproject/build-impl.xml:834: copylibs doesn't support the "excludeFromCopy" attribute
BUILD FAILED (total time: 0 seconds)

Could someone explain or help me to get this fixed?


It's just a simple Netbeans bug file. Click on the link on the second to last line which is /home/jeggy/Skjøl/NetBeansProjects/KTEditor/nbproject/build-impl.xml:834:

Remove the attribute of excludeFromCopy – not the whole line, only the piece of code associated with it!
