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 error:
Feature FeatureInfo[webcommon] is incomplete: some module(s) are missing: org.netbeans.libs.oracle.jsparser
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 org.netbeans.libs.oracle.jsparser to be installed.The plugin named org.netbeans.libs.oracle.jsparser is needed and not found.
The others (Ruby / Java SE + FX / Netbeans Development) present this message:
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?
java.net.UnknownHostException: biglap: biglap: Name or service not known
If you have anything to try please let me know.
