Thanks. Updating from the duinsoft repositories (http://www.duinsoft.nl/packages.php?t=en
) was my preferred option. I had to uninstall and then reinstall netbeans anyway. But i find the same problem still. However i can point that the problem only exists when the window is maximized
. By other hand, there's no issues with other Java based soft here, so the problem must be other. Notice that also the secondary windows in Netbeans works well. The only misbehavior is the main menu when windows is maximized, as far as i can tell now.
Edited: I found other people with same problem (in year 2009): http://forums.netbeans.org/post-55143.html
My Netbeans says this in the "About" menu item:
Product Version: NetBeans IDE 7.1 (Build 201201101530)
Java: 1.6.0_30; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 20.5-b03
System: versión Linux 3.0.0-12-generic ejecutándose en amd64; UTF-8; es_AR (nb)
Edited: here's some more (year 2011). They talk about GNOME 3, and the comment #8 points the maximized window fact: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=118737
: Maybe this is related to Cinnamon desktop or themes?SOLVED:
the last mentioned thread provides a funny solutions. Moving the window to left/top corner previous to maximize window solves the issue!
After that, each time i open Netbeans it's just fine.
