How to install Netbeans on our Gnu / Linux distribution

Netbeans Logo

Currently there are many Free Software tools that allow us to obtain professional results when it was not possible before. One of those tools that allows us to create programs and apps is called Netbeans, a very popular and very complete IDE It will not only help us to create mobile apps but we will also be able to create websites, C ++ programs and web applications.

Netbeans is a very complete software but its installation is not as easy as it seems and can be a hassle if you do not know all the steps to be taken for its installation. Next we tell you how to install Netbeans on any Gnu / Linux distribution.

The official repositories of many GNU / Linux distributions already contain Netbeans, but either they don't install a full version or they don't install the latest stable version. That is why we are going to use the installation package that is published in the official website of the Software.

There are several versions of Netbeans, these versions They are reduced versions of the IDE that vary depending on the programming language that we want to use. Personally, I recommend you download the complete package with support for all programming languages. When we download the installation package we open a terminal in the folder where the downloaded package is and we write the following:

sudo chmod +x

sudo sh ./

After this, the installation of the IDE will begin in our Gnu / Linux distribution. In case of not having "sudo", we have to replace it with any command that acts as superuser or administrator. Before installing this IDE it is recommended to install the Java software in the distribution, a software that we all possibly already have but that could cause problems if we create applications without having this software installed on our computer.

The process is simple and can be quick if we follow these steps. Also, unlike other IDE's the installation is valid for any Gnu / Linux distribution.

    And when I need to update Netbeans do I have to download the new package and do the process again?
