Hi everyone,

I have this C project written in GCC,and linux ubuntu. I have installed netbeans and installed the GNU debugger(gmake, gcc, ..). I have tested to create compile and debugg a sample C project and it was working fine.Now my problem is: when I want to open My own project it does not recognize the folder as a project folder. it keeps opening it till it reach the actual .c files. Somehow Netbean doesn't recognize it as a project folder. what are the reasons for this? and how can I solve it?

Thank you so much.
sahar

ps. the reason I post it here is because it is not related to C but rather is a Netbeans question.

If you created and set up an empty project with the IDE and then populated it with the existing sources?
