phpunit with Netbeans on Ubuntu

As a newbie to PHP I got lots of headache on setting up phpunit. It is a little tricky to setup phpunit on Ubuntu since the documentation about this is not accurate. Make some notes here for the future references.

To install phpunit, the only way is to use PEAR. However I got annoying errors during the process.

1. apt-get does not install latest Pear, it only install the PEAR up to verision 1.9.2 which will be complained then when you are installing phpunit. Use this,
$ wget
$ php go-pear.phar
2. Then install phpunit
pear channel-discover
pear install phpunit/PHPUnit
3. Setup netbeans for phpunit
The right path of phpunit is /home/xxx/pear/bin/phpunit not /usr/lib/php/PHPUnit as documented on neatbeans official website.
