It looks like your current netbeans is corrupted.
2) Generally, the netbeans process is stopped once you restart the system. but please check it once again.
open your terminal and type $ ps -aux
now search netbeans, it should not be there but if you find it. copy the pid and kill it using
$ kill -9 pid no.
If there are more than one netbeans, kill all.
3) Did you install it using software center or generally developers has a file name netbeans.sh?
Thank you for your reply. I checked the software center and uninsatlled netbeans. I then reinstalled netbeans with
and put the following in my .profile account
alias Netbeans='sudo /usr/local/netbeans-7.2.1/bin/netbeans'
Than gets around the problem but is probably suboptimal.
When I typed
ps -aux | grep netbeans
