I started teaching myself Java and the IDE for most of the tutorials used is Eclipse. The author of the latest book I’m reading is using NetBeans so I decided to install NetBeans 8 to follow along with the author’s examples and the book’s tutorials. The below video shows you how to install NetBeans in Linux Mint which is currently my main desktop OS at home. Apologies for the loss of audio halfway through the video as my headset died. The video does however show the installation, where to find NetBeans after the installation finished and that it works like a charm in Linux Mint.
