First make sure you have Java Installed on your system.
sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jdk
Download Netbeans from http://netbeans.org/index.html .Open terminal and cd to the download location
Start the installer and follow the on screen instruction. On terminal type:
If you get following error in eclipse:
Failed to load JavaHL Library.
These are the errors that were encountered:
no libsvnjavahl-1 in java.library.path
no svnjavahl-1 in java.library.path
no svnjavahl in java.library.path
java.library.path = /usr/lib/jni/
Close eclipse and run following command on terminal.
sudo apt-get install libsvn-java
Edit eclipse.ini file.
sudo nano /usr/lib/eclipse/eclipse.ini
Add following two lines after -vmargs
save and close
If you are still getting the same error, this is because Ubuntu 11.10 in lagging in JavaHL version. If you install from Ubuntu 11.10 repository , it installs 1.6.x, although the newer version is 1.7.x . Simple solution would be to uninstall subversion 1.8.x from eclipse and install version 1.6.x.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/thunderbird-stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install thunderbird
I was really annoyed the wired scroll bar in Ubuntu and Mint, specially, when using eclipse. Found this quick fix. What it does it tell X11 to not to use overlayscroollbars.
Edit following file: /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80overlayscrollbars
sudo nano /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80overlayscrollbars
Copy following line. Save and Exit.
Log off and Login back. You should see traditional scroll bar.
Install eclipse on Ubuntu. Open terminal and type:
sudo apt-get install eclipse
Two useful directories are:
Default plugin directory is:
Copy all the required plugins in this directory. If for some reason, plugins are not loaded, you might need to change permistion of the dropins directory. Try:
sudo chown -R user_name /usr/share/eclipse/dropins
Open terminal and type:
sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback
Unity 2D is is one of the best desktop of Ubuntu. It is fast, efficient and reliable. Although, we want things our own way. Best way to customize unity 2d is using compiz. By Default compiz is used for Unity, but not for unity 2D. Here we will configure compiz to work for Unity 2D.
Install compiz with your preferred method. Install Compizconfig from the software center or Open terminal and type
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
Now configure Ubuntu to use compiz for Unity 2D. Edit ubuntu-2d.session located at /usr/share/gnome-session/sessions . In the terminal type:
sudo nano /usr/share/gnome-session/sessions/ubuntu-2d.session
Change all the DefaultProvider-* to compiz. Save and exit. After editing, it should look something like this:
Logoff and login back. Start compiz from the menu.
Select Desktop from left menu and then select Unity
You should be able to play around with the settings.
