I just updated my JDK to the JDK 1.8 because i couldnt find the jfxrt.jar needed by java FX in the 1.7 version.
I downloaded the JDK from here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html
Specifically the version: jdk-8u5-linux-i586.rpm
I use opensuse 13.1 by the way.
Now after the installation my usr/java/jdk1.9_05/lib still does not contain the jfxrt.jar.
Has anybody an idea why, I read that this version should actually contain it. Can I fix this problem putting the jar in ther manually?
For me on OSX it's under
jdk1.8.0_05.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/lib/ext/jfxrt.jar. I'd guess it's in an analogous place on your machine. Try
Am using linuxmint 18.1 and i had the same issue. i realized that the open jdk i had didn't have the jfxrt.jar library. Download another jdk from oracle and then install it. Remember to change the path in the netbeans.conf file in the netbeans installation folder.
