View Full Version : netbeans blank window

May 6th, 2008, 11:34 PM
hello all,

i'm trying to install the latest version of netbeans from http://download.netbeans.org/netbeans/6.1/final/, after I downloaded and ran the .sh file, I get a blank netbeans window(with no widgets in it).

The contents of the terminal are ..

Configuring the installer...
Searching for JVM on the system...
Preparing bundled JVM ...
Extracting installation data...
Running the installer wizard...
/usr/share/themes/Human/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:71: Engine "ubuntulooks" is unsupported, ignoring
/usr/share/themes/Human/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:242: Priority specification is unsupported, ignoring

I'm using the UBUNTU ver.7.10 and when I do a java -version I get

java version "1.5.0_13"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_13-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 1.5.0_13-b05, mixed mode)

This was the same behavior when I tried to install netbeans from the synaptic manager last month OR when I tried to get the JDK+netbeans pack version 6.0

Any help would be appreciated.

Try disabling compiz or running the following in a terminal and then launching netbeans from the same terminal:

export AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit
