IntelliJ 12: running it on X via ssh, ide getting stuck

I am connecting
remotelly to my PC via

ssh -C -o CompressionLevel=9 -X MY_PC_IP

and then running idea. It starts and I can see the ide window and everything. But as soon as a popup window is about to start, everything gets stuck and I have to kill it.

Using NXClient, I face a different issue. The ide starts up but the cursor is invisible and it doesn't accept keyboard input.

Any ideas?

Hi Konstantinos,

What IJ version do you use?

Try to run it under java7 and add the following line to $IDEA_HOME/bin/idea.properties - 'sun.java2d.xrender=True'

I am running 12.01
No luck with xrender:

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.6-b04, mixed mode)
WARNING: The version of libXrender.so cannot be detected.
,The pipe line will be enabled, but note that versions less than 0.9.3
may cause hangs and crashes
    See the release notes for more details.
XRender pipeline enabled
Xrender: INFO: Jules library not installed.
XRender pipeline enabled



but then it had the same issues.

Then the only thing to check then is that you have 'sun.java2d.pmoffscreen=false' at your idea.properties (should be there by default).

No other advice, sorry :(
