Subject Some plugins require plugin to be installed.
Date Mon, 25 Mar 2019 17:20:30 GMT
Hi folks,

I've installed Netbeans from source on OpenSUSE. I'm using Oracle JDK8 and
Ant 10.

I've installed the application to /usr/local/bin/netbeans and made that
directory owned by my user account.

I can launch the IDE OK but when I open a PHP project it shows an
exclamation mark and when I click on Resolve Problems I get the following

        Feature FeatureInfo[webcommon] is incomplete: some module(s) are

I thought it might be a plugin not working but when I check out the plugins
I can't retrieve the available list from online and the installed plugins
shows 9 installed but only the IDE is enabled. The other web related ones
(HTML5 / PHP) when I attempt to enable them show the following message:
*Some plugins require plugin to be
*The plugin named is needed and not
found.     *

The others (Ruby / Java SE + FX / Netbeans Development) present this
*Some plugins require plugin org.netbeans.modules.nbjavac to be installed.*
*The plugin named org.netbeans.modules.nbjavac is needed and not found.*

I did manage to enable Tools and Service Registry thinking it might be a
dependency problem but still the same issue.

I'm guessing it's a path issue perhaps because of the way I've installed it
and run it.

I thought it might have been because I'd not launched as described, I'd
added the bin directory to path and was launching just typing netbeans.

I've removed the .netbeans and .cache/netbeans directories from the my home
folder and launched using the command ./nbbuild/netbeans/bin/netbeans but I
still get the same issue.

It does show me an error on startup which refers to the hostname of the
laptop. I didn't think this was the problem, but perhaps it is? biglap: biglap: Name or service not known
at org.netbeans.CLIHandler$
at org.openide.util.RequestProcessor$
at org.openide.util.lookup.Lookups.executeWith(

If you have anything to try please let me know.

Thank you,
