Php storm cant create .idea folder on Linux

Hi, can you tell me please how can I fix that Storm cant save project settings in .idea folder? It throws me a dialog at the shutting down the program with text "PhpStorm was unable to save some project files, are you sure you want to close this project anyway?" I am new on Linux and little insane of this permission rights on every file... How can I enable creating and writing in the .idea folder? Thanks.

As I founded out It also denied me to mode folders in project (like bower_components).

when I tried to change chmod of /opt/lampp/htdocs folder as

pc@user chmod -R 777 /opt/lampp/htdocs

it denied me that. I had to do it like root and it did it. Now I can move bower_components folder but there is no .idea folder. Alert about .idea does not appear now. But where is that folder?

Try to open PhpStorm > File > Settings > Directories. Project structure folder should be listed there (showing .idea folder location). 

If it's not there try to recreate a project.

Yes there it is. But via file manager I dont see it. Why?

File manager omits directories starting with dot by default.

If you run ls from terminal, it won't show you such folders as well, but ls -al will.

If you use Ubuntu, there is an option for this in File Manager: <http://askubuntu.com/questions/470837/how-to-show-hidden-folders-in-ubuntu-14-04>.
