If you properly ran the chmod +x, then you just need
as the command.

You can always run the shell script by invoking sh or bash if you didn't make them executable:

These days sh and bash are linked to the same binary on many common linux.

If you properly ran the chmod +x

How would i check?

ls -l
revels the permission of both look the same
You should have -rwxr-xr-x   as the permissions
If you have -rw-r--r-- , then you need to run the command with sh or bash.

Hi I fixed it like this

I have -rwxrwxrwx

typed  bash got error

typed  bash --javahome /home/trevor/jdk1.8.0_161  install started

accepted default location for netbeans ie /home/local/netbeans-8.2 (Originally the java file loaded netbeans in /home/trevor/netbeans-8.2)

So I now have two installations

Changed desktop icon to point to "/home/local/netbeans-8.2/bin/netbeans"
