Idea ce 11.0.1 does not work on Arch Linux 64

Hello everybody, This is my first post. When I open a source code, I don't see the cursor (so I can not type...). I attached the screenshot and log file. Is there anyone who can help me? Thanks.

Hello,

It looks like the problem is that the editor is not focused. Try to select anything at the project view and press Escape after that.

Hello, It doesn't help. I can't select something from the project space, when I press the mouse key it just opens (no selection at all).

I suspect there is a problem at the swing level there then :(

Which JDK are you using? If you are using Open JDK try Sun(Oracle) JDK, which is recommended by Jetbrains

I'm using Oracle JDK.

$ java -version
java version "1.7.0"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0-b147)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 21.0-b17, mixed mode)

Arch Linux is not one of our target platforms, i.e. we don't perform any special testing and provide support for it.

However, I remember that we have received number of complaints regarding the IDE behavior under that OS. All proposed solutions targeted were OS-specific, e.g. this one or this.

I believe that that is a kind of a common java swing problem under arch linux and the solution should be searched among the arch linux users.

few more options:
try 32 bit JVM 1.6.xx version. That's what I am running on Ubuntu (64x).
Also, -Dsun.java2d.pmoffscreen=false may help, see:
