Solution JetBrains IDE not working in Xmonad Linux

Answered

This is a solution and not a question, since no online resources document this problem.

I've been having issues with all JetBrains IDEs in my Xmonad window manager, they would just show a grey screen and nothing more.

Solution:

import XMonad
import XMonad.Hooks.EwmhDesktops

main = xmonad $ ewmh def {
  modMask = mod4Mask
  }

Add `ewmh` to your config and every thing works fine.
