I'm planning on installing Netbeans 7.2.1 on my Ubuntu 12.10. So far I've 
already installed JDK 7u11 without any problems and already downloaded 
Netbeans from Oracle site.

My question is this where should I install Netbeans? Should I accept the 
default /usr/local/netbeans-7.2.1 or should I change this path to my /home?

I'm questioning because someone told me not to install it in the default 
proposed installation path because later on I’ll be more than likely to run 
into permissions problems down the line. Working with Netbeans I would not 
have permissions to write in that folder thus disabling me from adding 
Libraries to my projects, installing and uninstalling plugins to the IDE, and 
even with Glassfish server configuration.

I've googled in order to cast a light on my doubts to no avail. The only 
thing I found was http://forums.netbeans.org/ntopic37298.html, at Netbeans ;
forum which brought even some more doubts.

Can anyone help me?
