I installed netbeans using
zypper install netbeans. Trying to run it, I get the "loading" splash screen which is proceeded by a small popup which asks me if I want to register my copy and receive some benefits. Once that popup is gone, I'm left with a big beige screen and nothing else. It's almost like netbeans can't be displayed. Running
netbeans from the command line does not give me any output or error messages.
I also had this same issue when I was trying to install it using the
.sh file found on their website.
I'm running opensuse 11.4 with dwm as my window manager. I'm also using the AMD's fglrx graphics driver (I have also experienced this issue using the default open source driver shipped with opensuse).
EDIT When trying to run
sudo netbeans, I get:
/usr/share/netbeans/6.8/bin/../platform11/lib/nbexec: WARNING: environment variable DISPLAY is not set
And no display. This is not same behavior as when I launch as a regular user.
