What? Running sudo netbeans opens NetBeans with the root user. You should simply start it with netbeans or with the icon. No need for root.

gksu uses your user with root access. Its a "graphical sudo". So basically its your user, not the "root". If you use "sudo" , you will get the "root" account launch it. (So if you use gksu, it'll save the stuff into your folder, 'sudo' saves it into /root/) – Shiki May 23 '10 at 7:52
