    Default Where to install Netbeans

    I'm planning on installing Netbeans 7.2.1 on my Ubuntu 12.10. So far I've already installed JDK 7u11 without any problems and already downloaded Netbeans from Oracle site.

    My question is this where should I install Netbeans? Should I accept the default /usr/local/netbeans-7.2.1 or should I change this path to my /home?

    I'm questioning because someone told me not to install it in the default proposed installation path because later on Iíll be more than likely to run into permissions problems down the line. Working with Netbeans I would not have permissions to write in that folder thus disabling me from adding Libraries to my projects, installing and uninstalling plugins to the IDE, and even with Glassfish server configuration.

    I've googled in order to cast a light on my doubts to no avail. The only thing I found was this, at Netbeans forum which brought even some more doubts.

    Can anyone help me?

    Moved to the IDE section. It would get lost in the What's wrong section.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
