Netbeans 8 won't install on Fedora 21

Hello!

I have just installed Fedora 21 and wanted to install Netbeans as well. When I run the install script I get the following output:

./netbeans-8.0.2-linux.sh Configuring the installer... Searching for JVM on the system... Extracting installation data... Running the installer wizard... Can`t initialize UI Running in headless mode

Exception: java.awt.HeadlessException thrown from the UncaughtExceptionHandler in thread "main"

I tried switching to classic Gnome or Gnome on Wayland too but without success. Since it worked with the past 6 Fedora versions I used, I am wondering what could be the cause.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks,

Peter
