Setting up JavaFX 2.1 dev preview on 64 bit Linux Netbeans

I have based this on these instructions: http://netbeans.org/kb/docs/java/javafx-setup.html#create-platform-manual

1. install (extract) 32 bit JDK
2. install (extract) JavaFX 2.1 preview http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javafx/downloads/devpreview-1429449.html
3. setup JavaFX enabled platform in NetBeans:
3.1 Start Netbeans 7.1
3.2 Go to Tools -> Java Platforms
3.3 Add platform (your 32 bit JDK)
3.4 Once you finish and it is created in the list of the platforms this JDK will have a tab called “JavaFX”
3.5 Add your JavaFX directory here

You are ready to start using JavaFX on Linux

Note: My system is 64 bit Ubuntu 11.10
