Using irc in NetBeans IDE 7.2

Geertjan Wielenga

Turns out to be easy to use irc in NetBeans IDE 7.2. Install Irssi (I was able to do apt-get to install it), which has a handy guide here, and then use the Terminal window in NetBeans IDE (Window | Output | Terminal):

In the above, do this:

/connect irc.freenode.net
/join #netbeans

Then, next time you have a problem in NetBeans IDE or there's some question you have about how to do something, just type your question in the Terminal window and someone will help you, if someone is there who knows the answer.

    ahum.....that was a little dissapointing.

    I expected a fancy NB screen since everything is cool whitin NB.

    Anyway... I think I stick with my xchat outside the NB IDE.

    However...i would to like to say thank you for your efforts concerning NB.
