IDEA gets stuck after splash

Answered

I'm running Intellij under linux. I've had no problems with it until today. When It ends the splash loading screen it stays frozen in a gray background that doesn't update. Here's the log file ($HOME/.IdeaIC15/system/log/idea.log)

Are you sure it's indeed frozen and it's not a rendering issue like https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-110048?

Do you have the same problem with 2016.1 RC from https://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/IDEADEV/IDEA+2016.1+EAP? Does it help if you run it with Oracle JDK instead of OpenJDK? See https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/articles/206544879.

No luck with Oracle JDK, and the 2016.1 doesn't event show the splashscreen. Just white

Please try with some other window manager or from a new user account.

Sorry for the late reply. I tried with a different window manager and it works. Thanks

It was indeed a repainting issue. For anyone experiencing the same problem I downloaded this utility: http://tools.suckless.org/x/wmname
