I should note that this actually worked at one point, then I did an update to my Ubuntu system and now things just aren't jiving. IDEA runs pretty well for the most part, except when I go to Settings -> Colors & Fonts. The "Colors & Fonts" dialog comes up just fine. I then attempt to click the "..." button in the "Editor Font" section (this button is what pulls up a dialog allowing you to select the editor font), and IDEA crashes out with this:
Let me note a few things:
1. The "Appearance" dialog comes up fine!
2. I have seen this issue: http://support.jetbrains.com/kb/entry.jspa?externalID=172&categoryID=4
3. I ran the FontTest program attached to the above issue, and it did not crash and did not have any problems!
I also saw another forum thread where someone was having an issue bringing up the "Appearance" dialog - however, again, my appearance dialog comes up fine.
Does anyone have any tips on getting this working in Ubuntu (I updated to Dapper Drake Flight 2)?
