I tried to set up remote development with Netbeans IDE 7.3 Beta 2 so that I could build on my Raspberry Pi from my Win 7 laptop. I followed the pretty straightforward instructions here, but unlike what is shown, Netbeans would not automatically recognize the GNU toolchain on the RPi.

I tried logging in as root (still had the same problem), and I also tried to manually add the toolchain to Netbeans. I was able to locate the toolchain executables (gcc, g++, gdb, etc.) but it seems that Netbeans is unable to access them, because it marks them as invalid.

My RPi is running Raspbian.

In the tutorial you posted. The poster says that he is using version 7.2.1 of Netbeans. Have you tried using his version?

Sometimes a small change between versions will break something. Give version 7.2.1 a shot..

  • Yeah, that fixed it. The author of the tutorial gave me the same advice.

  • The stable 7.3 works fine, for anyone who sees this later.
