The following tip is based on Weiqi Gao's original post on  JavaFX 1.0 On Linux: NetBeans Plugin. The method outlined in that post does not work with JavaFX 1.1. First you will need to install JDK 1.6 update 12 and NetBeans 6.5.

  • Download all nbm files from here, except the org-netbeans-modules-javafx-sdk-win.nbm file.
  • Extract the org-netbeans-modules-javafx-sdk-mac.nbm file. (An nbm file is in a zip format)
  • Go to the extracted directory, and do the following steps:
      - Replace the info/info.xml with my new one.
      - Delete all files in the META-INF directory.
      - Replace the netbeans/config/Modules/org-netbeans-modules-javafx-sdk-mac.xml file with
        org-netbeans-modules-javafx-sdk-linux.xml
      -
    Replace the netbeans/modules/org-netbeans-modules-javafx-sdk-mac.jar
         file with org-netbeans-modules-javafx-sdk-linux.jar
  • Create a new zip file from the extracted directory, rename it to org-netbeans-modules-javafx-sdk-lin.nbm and replace the org-netbeans-modules-javafx-sdk-mac.nbm file with this new one.
  • Open NetBeans and install all the nbm files (ignore the nbm file signature warning).
  • Restart NetBeans and enjoy JavaFX on Linux, you can even debug JavaFX on Linux.
