Can't start IntelliJ Idea - Error: LinkageError occurred while loading main class com.intellij.idea.Main

Answered

Hi everyone :) I can't start IntelliJ Idea (latest) on Linux (GarudaLinux, which is based on Arch Linux. I'm using Qtile flavor if it matters). I have OpenJDK 17 installed. Trying to run it directly after installation nothing happens. Trying to run it from terminal returns:

OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM warning: Archived non-system classes are disabled because the java.system.class.loader property is specified (value = "com.intellij.util.lang.PathClassLoader"). To use archived non-system classes, this property must not be set

Error: LinkageError occurred while loading main class com.intellij.idea.Main

java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError: null

I'm stuck. It's the first time seeing this kind of problem. I have no idea what to do.

Hi Babak,

Try to either install the intellij-idea-ultimate-edition-jre sub-package, or downgrade your system JDK to version 11.
