Can't run idea-IU-201.6668.121



after updating it today the Idea didn't start. downloaded whole gzip, removed .IntelliJIdea2019.3, still doesn't start. Splash screen appears and then nothing happens. The console like

$ /opt/idea-IU-201.6668.121/bin/

that's with -Didea.debugger.trace=ALL - still nothing is logged, .IntelliJIdea2020 folder is not created.

The idea-IU-193.6911.18  starts and works ok.

is there something but idea.debugger.trace to tweak to get more logging?

Does /var/log/syslog or /var/log/messages contain additional information?

Have you tried to clear plugins directory?

in /var/log/syslog (same appears in the log when I run idea-IU-193.6911.18) and it creates


in ~/.cache/JetBrains but all are empty. Tried to clean up everything - nothing changed.

+cleaning plugins (removing IntelliJIdea2020.1 from  ~/.local/share/JetBrains)  didn't help either

Don't have ideas on the fly.

Please report at YouTrack with logs and system info attached. Screencast would also speed up the investigation.

it actually finally worked. I noticed another java process and after killing it 2020 ran ok. The process must have been from first IntelliJIdea2020.1 instance which somehow lost its window but didn't exit.
