Upgrade Netbeans IDE to 6.8


Hello,

Just used synaptic to install Netbeans IDE. I see that it is version 6.01
and the latest version of Netbeans is 6.8.

How do I upgrade my installation ? As there is no option to do so in the package manager?

Thanks.

You may just go to sun.com and download the full installer. This is non Debian stuff with whatever implications that has. I'd uninstall the Debian version first. If there is a Debian version, I've always used the Sun one. Sun's been taken over, 4 Billion dollars or something - how you get that valuable with free software??

Testing and unstable also only have version 6.0.1. I'd recommend using something other than netbeans.

The reason I went for Netbeans was I heard good reports about version 6.8 and the Drupal plug in. Not sure what else is out there for Drupal. Any suggestions?

What distro are you using ? I was assuming Debian stable, 5.0. In which case you should be able to install emacs22-gtk.

Ok Installed emacs22-gtk. Got to run it from a terminal, and no fancy interface -(

One last question tho, to drupalify it (If there is such a word!) I have to add this code http://drupal.org/node/59868 to my $HOME/.emacs: Not being a guru I assume $HOME means (from root) the home/myusername directory and .emacs is a sub folder. If so I dont have that directory in my filesystem! Only got .emacs.d folder, Do I have to create a directory? If that is so, then what do I call the file?

Sorry for noob questions, but I am very new to this side of things!

Thanks again,

Arigatou !

It will have an entry in the Debian menus.

$HOME is a shell variable that is set to your home dir, which as you guess is usually /home/username. For fun, do this in a shell
Code:
echo $HOME

Very close. It is a file.

Create the file and cut and paste the code you linked to into it. Use emacs to create and edit the file! From your home dir
Code:
emacs .emacs

No problem. I'm impressed to see that you are willing to give emacs a try and even making an effort to set it up. Please make sure you have installed the php-elisp package as this provides the php mode for emacs.

Subarashi!!!!!

Found it hidden in the menu system (under accessories!)

I was right about $HOME ! (good guess!)

Tried to create .emacs from emacs...ended up with a file called emacs .emacs (that's your fault! - So I renamed it

Started it up, opened a drupal module file (had to give it permission 0777 to edit it)
emacs says "Drupal mode activated" and the file has lots of pretty colours and indents, just like an IDE!

Was hoping the drupal API was gonna be loaded (That's why I fancied NETBEANS) but guess I can't get everything!

Arigatou very much for you kind help, it is greatly appreciated!

I feel hard done by - slightly inefficient search if you'll forgive me. http://netbeans.org/downloads/index.html and make sure to click the rite thing in the "platform" drop down box up towards the top right.
