1117 Linux 2.6: Nice but plugins still cannot be installed

I know this is an existing issue but I'm still seeing this with my Red
Hat Linux 2.6 kernel:

$ ./idea.sh

the ContextViewer to name just one...

Thanks,

Nick.

Download it from
http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/ContextViewerPlugin
and copy the jar to $IDEA_PATH/plugins

Start idea. It should work.

I do it my going into the plugin manager, select the plugins to install, select OK. IDEA will ask if I wnat to shut down, and select OK. Then I manually copy the plugins from $HOME/.IntelliJIdea/system/plugins/ $IDEA/plugins before starting IDEA again.

Thanks. May I add that you also need to remove the "action.script" file
from $HOME/.IntelliJIdea/system/plugins/ otherwise the crash still occurs.

Thanks,

Nick.
