I manually installed Netbeans 6.8, by downloading the binary and installing it.

I am now upgrading to Netbeans 6.9, and I want to uninstall the previous version first.

Any tips on how to uninstall Netbeans 6.8?

you can try this:

Go to the directory where NetBeans was installed (e.g. netbeans-6.8 in /usr/local) and start ./ script.

   sudo /usr/local/share/netbeans-6.8/

and in other cases if the jdk is located in another folder (like this one isn't in the netbeans-6.8 folder)

sudo /usr/local/share/netbeans-6.8/ --javahome /usr/local/share/jdk1.6.0_05/

Just run updatedb and then locate, then run the correct one.

I personally uninstall both glassfish and netbeans using that same method.

I couldnt find the file so i used the Synaptic Package Manager, i marked all Netbeans 6.8 components to be removed and voila! simply like that.

In my Ubuntu 10.10, Netbeans is located in the directory home/userName/netbeans-6.8/

Run this command to unstall Netbeans:

sudo home/userName/netbeans-6.8/
