Installing latest version of Netbeans IDE?


Trying to install the latest netbeans from Oracle, which is usually easy, and do 'bash netbeans-7.1.1-ml-linux.sh'. The installer starts but says that 'no compatible JDK was found'. Eventually the installation does not work.

So I install the JDK from the Oracle web site, download the tarball and unpack it in my home directory. Then try to install netbeans in my home directory. Same thing happens, 'no compatible JDK was found'. I enter the path to the JDK manually, when invited to do so, but it say: 'an unknown error occured while validating the path'.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks any help.

My suggestion is to read through the installer script. Look for path variables that you can edit. That may do the trick.

Since you say bash, are you in some other shell at that time?
