    Thanks, it works just one more question /usr/local/netbeans

    can we start netbeans manually without going to the unity launcher from desktop

    can we create the desktop launcher for it ?

    if yes the please mention the steps for it.

    Thanks Once Again.

      Please also mention the steps for removing it either manually or through synaptic package manger.

      is it a good idea to install netbeans in /home so that we can have permission control over the files?

      Looking forward for your comments.
