Starting IDEA 5.0.1 under Linux

The only way I can start IDEA under Linux (Ubuntu Hoary) is by opening a command prompt, starting IDEA, and then leaving that command prompt open.

 

If you close the command prompt then IDEA will close instantly. Both Eclipse and NetBeans are much smarter in this respect. Probably that the start up script should fork a new process and it doesn't do that.

 

Also, it is impossible to add IDEA to a menu or a panel, it won't start at all. This could be related to the previous issue.

 

Does anyone know of a workaround?

 

Thanks,

Marius

Hello,

 

 

If you close the command prompt then IDEA will close instantly. Both

Eclipse and NetBeans are much smarter in this respect. Probably that

the start up script should fork a new process and it doesn't do that.

 

Try "nohup ./idea.sh &" while being in the same directory as idea.sh is.

 

Also, it is impossible to add IDEA to a menu or a panel, it won't

start at all.

 

This question is too general. You have probably to use the full path.

 

This could be related to the previous issue.

 

Hardly.

 

HTH,

Yes, the path is fine, this is the first thing I

checked. I wrote a short scripts that cd's into the

the IDEA bin folder and then starts the script there.

I added nohup in front of the command, still no

luck.

 

All in all, I think IntelliJ should spend a bit of

time making IDEA more Linux friendly.

I am using Gnome and have a added IDEA to my panel without any problem, so I don't think this is IDEA's fault...

(I am using SuSE and Gentoo, haven't tried Ubuntu...)

The command field of my application launcher under gnome looks like this

 

sh -c 'export IDEA_JDK=/usr/local/java/jdk1.5;/usr/local/idea-5.0/bin/idea.sh'
