problem installing on linux

Just tried to install phpstorm but I am getting an error

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM warning: ignoring option MaxPermSize=350m; sup
port was removed in 8.0

Startup Error: Unable to detect graphics environment

I do have the GUI installed - I actually did that in hope to use phpstorm ... lol

What am I missing?

What JDK do you run PhpStorm with? Such errors (

 java.awt.HeadlessException: Unable to detect graphics environment) may be caused by:

- your JDK is headless - doesn't include graphics libraries (see, for example
- permissions issue (
- accessing java in non-GUI environment
