Linux / Windows – what’s the difference…

NetBeans on Ubuntu

Earlier I had version NB 8.0.* on my laptop – worked like a charm.
On Ubuntu 16.04 I installed NB 8.1.* via official repo – and that’s where the problems started…
I had no luck enabling auto-completion from included file – Interwebs was full of probable “solutions” to remove cache and/or to check settings and/or add folder to source, etc… Nothing worked for me sadly. So I found out that NB 8.2.* was officially released (sadly 16.04 repo did not include it yet) – downloaded from official site (, and installed locally under my user.
Again works like a charm.

For me, seems that NB is like Windows – over 1 working edition comes crappy one…
