I'm trying to install Netbeans on Ubuntu. I downloaded netbeans-7.3-javaee-linux.sh, but when I opened it it didn't work. I tried opening it from a terminal, but it didn't help, and I ran:

# sudo chmod +x /home/amal/netbeans-7.3-javaee-linux.sh

What am I doing wrong?

Run the script as follows:

$ sudo bash /home/amal/netbeans-7.3-javaee-linux.sh

This script will execute and install netbeans.
