IntelliJ IDEA requires Java 8 to run on Linux, more recent versions are not support as runtime, using JetBrains Runtime is recommended: https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/articles/206544879.

Thank Serge, please put this in the "system requirements" for IntelliJ, I went there and checked and it did not specify a version of Java needed.
