Description cfelde 2007-10-29 22:05:33 UTC
While trying to install NetBeans 6.0 beta 2 on a newly installed Ubuntu 7.10 (64-bit) the installation window, that
appears right after starting the install script, is blank. Tried starting the script both as root (sudo) and as myself
with the same result.

Script gives the following output in the terminal windows:

cfelde@laptop:~/Diverse_installasjonsfiler$ sudo ./ 
[sudo] password for cfelde:
Configuring the installer...
Searching for JVM on the system...
Extracting installation data...
Running the installer wizard...
/usr/share/themes/Human/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:71: Engine "ubuntulooks" is unsupported, ignoring
/usr/share/themes/Human/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:242: Priority specification is unsupported, ignoring

Using the following Java version (32-bit):

cfelde@laptop:~/Diverse_installasjonsfiler$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_03"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_03-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 1.6.0_03-b05, mixed mode)

No workaround found..

Problem looks like it's fixed when using the 64-bit version of Java.

It is mentioned in Release Notes:
