I have used IDEA for several months, and it was ok until now.
Now launching IDEA from shortcut has no effect. I suppose that happened after some updates.
I tried to reinstall IDEA, but problem is still there. Launching idea.sh from Terminal gives similar effect:
chronoexp@ChronoExp-PC:~/Programs/idea-IC-135.1289/bin$ ./idea.sh Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM warning: ignoring option MaxPermSize=250m; support was removed in 8.0 chronoexp@ChronoExp-PC:~/Programs/idea-IC-135.1289/bin$
Note that message about HotSpot Server is ok. Previously after printing that, IDEA was launched. Now it simply kicks out with no error message.
Maybe there are some log files, where I can see possible error?<blockquote>
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS<br /> IDEA Version: 13.1.5 Build: 135.1289<br /> java version "1.8.0_20"<br /> Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_20-b26)<br /> Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 25.20-b23, mixed mode)</blockquote> Answer1:
So, restarting Ubuntu solved the problem. So easy!
p.s. It's a shame that I just did not try to reboot the system before asking question...Answer2:
IntelliJ (and few other Java programs) sometimes has a problem with window not appearing or being frozen. It took me some time to find this simple solution that might be useful for someone in the future:
It solved the problem for me.Answer3:
Check that even if it is installed in a subfolder of your home directory, the owner of <strong>idea-IC-135.1289</strong> is you (recursively).Answer4:
Go to the /bin and run ./idea.sh. This should solve your issue, without restarting Ubuntu.
