| Friday, August 15, 2014 | | |

NetBeans IDE 7.0.1 is available on Ubuntu's Software Center. But the latest stable version online is 8.0. Also using the method below you are required to get programming language specific bundle only.

If you are PHP developer, then why would you install IDE for Java or C or C++.

Installing Netbeans IDE 8.0

  1. Go to NetBeans official website and download the bundle required. There are 5 NetBeans bundle. NetBeans for Java SE, Java EE, C/C++, HTML5 & PHP, All (this package will support all individual bundles).
  2. The file downloaded will have a .sh extension.
  3. You have to make the file executable. To do so follow the steps below-
  • Right click on the file, select Properties.
  • Navigate to Permission Tab.
  • Check Allow executing file as program option.

Making file executable
NOTE - In the above method, if Group has Read-only permission the above method won't work. As soon as you'll check it, it will automatically get unchecked.

Using terminal to make file executable

sudo chmod +x 'path/to/'
To execute

sudo bash 'path/to/'

The program will also search for JVM on your system. It will also automatically install some updates while installing like Symphony framework, etc. I did only PHP bundle installation.
