So today, I'd like give you a trick on how to use "default" Netbeans (or many Java based applications) look and feel.
For me, the second look and feel is better than the first one.
OK! Please open file "netbeans.conf" located in the "etc" directory of Netbeans installation folder e.g. "/home/username/netbeans-7.1.2/etc" and replace:
- netbeans_default_options="-J-client -J-Xss2m -J-Xms32m -J-XX:PermSize=32m -J-Dapple.laf.useScreenMenuBar=true -J-Dapple.awt.graphics.UseQuartz=true -J-Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true -J-Dsun.zip.disableMemoryMapping=true -J-Dswing.aatext=true -J-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=lcd"
With this one:
Done! Save the file and open your Netbeans.
- netbeans_default_options="-J-client -J-Xss2m -J-Xms32m -J-XX:PermSize=32m -J-Dapple.laf.useScreenMenuBar=true -J-Dapple.awt.graphics.UseQuartz=true -J-Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true -J-Dsun.zip.disableMemoryMapping=true --laf Metal -J-Dswing.aatext=true -J-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=lcd"
