PhpStorm - problem on quit


the problem is next: on Linux (Debian Lenny 6.0) when I try to close PhpStorm, it doesn't close - application doesn't response and I can only kill process like

4897 ?        Sl     0:33 /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/bin/java -Xms32m -Xmx500m -XX:MaxPermSize=150m -ea -Didea.platform.prefix=PhpStorm

Who can help, please


We didn't met anything like this.

How exactly you're closing the application?

What's your window manager?


As i've described earlier, I close application like this way:

yareg@workplace:~$ ps ax | grep PhpStorm
3713 ?        S      0:00 /bin/sh /home/yareg/program/PhpStorm-2.0.1/bin/
3734 ?        Sl     8:30 /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/bin/java -Xms32m -Xmx500m -XX:MaxPermSize=150m -ea -Didea.platform.prefix=PhpStorm -Xbootclasspath/a:../lib/boot.jar -Djb.restart.code=88 com.intellij.idea.Main
4765 pts/0    S+     0:00 grep PhpStorm

yareg@workplace:~$ kill 3734

After that application is closed.

I use Gnome Version: 2.30.2


I was asking about how you are trying to close the IDE normally - by OS shortcut, application menu, etc. BTW Does it prompts for close OK/Cancel (or you've disabled it?)


Oh, sorry

No matter how I try to close application - click on Close button or select in main menu File -> Exit -  after that application is not responding  and nothing prompts OK/Cancel

However first few days PhpStorm was closing correctly


(Just a thought) If you have any 3rd-party plugins installed try disabling them, restart PhpStorm (so it started with 0 of such plugins active) and see how it will exit this time (when exiting close all projects -- so you have no active project on start).

Another idea to try: backup and delete (or just rename) PhpStorm settings folder (~/.WebIde10) -- this will be treated as clean/initial install (from configuration point of view). This is to see if there is something in PhpStorm configuration that may causing this (which I doubt, but still...)

Thanks, this idea is really helpful. Topic is closed.
