Yes, the path is fine, this is the first thing I checked. I wrote ashort scripts that cd's into the the IDEA bin folder and then startsthe script there. I added nohup in front of the command, still noluck.
Does this script work in the shell? I have in GNOME (2.10, Gentoo) asimple /opt/idea/bin/idea.sh in the starter and it works like a charm.
All in all, I think IntelliJ should spend a bit of time making IDEAmore Linux friendly.
Well, in this case I believe it's not IDEA's fault.-hs

It was just a suggestion, nothing about faults. Since you have to use nohup even from the shell I think that the startup script could use a bit of work. I used both Eclipse and NetBeans and they work much better under Linux (no need for nohup, you can add them to the panel/menu).

It took a little while to sort this out but eventually after reading the idea.sh script I realised that I needed to set the environment variable IDEA_JDK to the path of the jdk. Why does it not mention this in the Install-Linux-tar.txt file?I know that by definition that if your are installing a development environment you are meant to know what you are doing so stuff like this should be obvious, etc. etc..However a tiny bit of user friendliness would be a start.
