NetBeans with native OS Look and Feel

I have my own system color preferences, mostly low contrast and dark, in order to be gentle on my eyes. I know Java's programs tend to have good integration into the native "Look and Feel" of the working Operating System.

I have been trying out NetBeans recently on Kubuntu 9.10 Karmic and I had not been able to get the native colors to be enabled, until just tonigh.

NetBeans needs to be invoked with the following command argument --laf .

To get GTK/QT Look and Feel working, run NetBeans with this command argument:
netbeans --laf
