16.04 IntelliJ IDEA Desktop Entry not working

Spread the love

I tried running “Create Desktop Entry” both from “Tools” in main menu and “Configure” from the splash screen. It shows
Desktop Entry Created
You may now exit IDEA and start it from the system menu (restart a session if a new entry seem not to appear).

but after closing IDEA (without manually locking the icon to launcher), the icon is also removed. I have deleted the desktop entry under ~/.local/share/applications according to this thread Stack Overflow: Intellij launcher doesn’t work on unity?
Then I tried
chmod 777 /usr/share/applications/jetbrains-idea.desktop

and dragged it to launcher, which still doesn’t work.
JAVA_HOME and PATH are both set up correctly.
