'Run with profiler' disabled on Linux in Intellij Ultimate 2019.1 (Scala)

I've been using the integrated java profiler on Linux in Intellij 2018.3.5. I've just upgraded to 2019.1 and the icon is now disabled. It's visible, just greyed out.

I've followed all the instruction here (https://www.jetbrains.com/help/idea/cpu-profiler.html) and rebooted but it's still disabled.

The project is a Scala project, with SBT but using Intellij for project imports and for building. Everything else works fine.

Any ideas how I can debug the problem further to see why the icon is showing up disabled?


The profiler is still working in OS X with Intelilj 2019.1 on the same project. So maybe this is just a Linux issue?

Any advice on how I can investigate what's happening?


Peter - I don't think Windows is supported for the CPU profiler. "CPU Profiler is available on Linux and macOS" from here: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/idea/cpu-profiler.html

For me it's working fine in OS X but not working any more in Ubuntu.


I have the same problem, any updates?
