How to install Netbeans 12 on Ubuntu 20.04.

Today we are looking at how to install Netbeans 12 on Ubuntu 20.04.

To do this we first update our Linux Repositories, then we install Java, then we download the Netbeans appimage, next we make the appimage executable as a program, with the next two commands we move (and rename) the appimage to the /opt directory which is a folder where many third-party apps stores it's data and lastly we install a menu editor which we use to add Netbeans to our menu.  Enjoy!

Commands Used:
1) sudo apt update
2) sudo apt install default-jdk
3) wget
4) sudo touch /opt/NetBeans.AppImage
5) sudo mv netbeans /opt/NetBeans.AppImage
6) chmod 755 /opt/NetBeans.AppImage
7) sudo apt install menulibre
