How To : Install Netbeans CollabNet Subversion Client on Ubuntu
I think, Netbeans is the most powerful IDE (Integrated Development Environment). It has an integrated subversion client, it uses CollabNet Subversion Client. But, you will get little problem if you use Ubuntu, because there is only package available for RedHat (.rpm).
But, there is still other way to install the CollabNet Subversion Client on your Ubuntu. In fact, you don’t need to download a package from CollabNet. Simply use the Ubuntu repositories. Subversion client is available in Ubuntu software repositories, can you use the Synaptic Package Manager or apt-get from the terminal.
If you do not have Netbeans, download Netbeans first, the newest vesion is Netbeans 6.9. To install it, use Terminal and execute the .sh file
Oops, Netbeans requires JDK, get it from Sun Developer Network.
$sudo move jdk-1.60_20/ /usr/lib/
Next, install the subversion client.
$sudo apt-get install subversion
Check your subversion version, if you get this information, you’re good to go.
