View Full Version : [ubuntu] netbeans ide 6.8

March 11th, 2010, 09:09 AM
Hallo all

I installed netbeans with aptitude and it installed 6.7.1 now I want to upgrade to 6.8.
Can I just download from the netbeans site and install?

What are the gotchas?

If they provide a ubuntu netbean*.deb file then you can probably just run:

sudo apt-get install netbean*.deb once you have downloaded.

If it is something else then you probably should remove your current version.

sudo apt-get remove <software name>

i dont think that there is a way to upgrade it to 6.8.. u have to download it and install it separately from the old one and remove the old one afterwards..
