[SOLVED] Clion on Archlinux, error displaying IDE

Hey Guys, I just installed Clion on Archlinux and it looks horrible, it took me a while trying to use my JetBrains account to register my copy thinking it could help but everything is the same, I've noticed PhpStorm and IntelliJ looks fine, it's only a problem with Clion. Any ideas?

Here is the screenshot:

If i try to click something (when cursor turns to pointer) just big blocks of windows appear, no text anywhere.

Edit: forgot to mention, I'm using openbox.

Hi Carlos.

Could you please specify which JDK are you using? We suppose that you use different JDK versions (for example, bundled JDK for CLion and system for PhpStorm or vice versa).

Hi Anna!
     I apologize for not updating this thread, I x-posted this question in Archlinux forums and solved it.
