Intellij crashes when click on appearance

I am using EAP 3245 on Debian at the moment, but for some reason, when I click on the appearance in the setting, idea crashes completely, and I have this message throw on my xterm window

java: ../../../src/share/native/sun/awt/font/t2k/t1.c:2178: tsi_T1GetGlyphIndexFromAdobeCode: Assertion `0' failed.

does anyone know how to deal with this? or a way around it?

Thanks a lot in advance.


It has something to do with font handling.

You can fix this by running IDEA in JDK 1.5 (but that might cause some other problems) or in a JDK from Blackdown (

I use 1.4.2_01 from Blackdown with Debian Sid, and that works fine for me.


Thanks lot guys for your help, I will try using blackdown jre then.
