I found how to fix the focus issue in bspwm. Apparently, at some point JetBrains added a focus stealing suppression feature which fights with automatic focusing feature from WMs like bspwm, i3, etc...

In order to stop that from happening, you need to set the suppress.focus.stealing=false in your file. You can find it file in Help -> Edit Custom Properties.... Related github issue

I believe this should also work for i3 but I don't use that WM at the moment so I could only test bspwm. This should also work for every JetBrains' IDE.

Another possibility, if that doesn't work, is you need to switch your boot JDK to another one that the one originally included with the IDE. For that, press Ctrl + Shift + A then type in Switch Boot JDK (case insensitive), choose the right option that appeared and you'll then have access to the switching menu. Related github issue (It's not completely related but could influence focus.)

It would be nice from the maintainers to pin a message containing these solutions for others find the workarounds easily. For that purpose, I also include below the other i3-only solution previously suggested by @vlord:

With i3 window manager, I get a disappearing caret issue (looks like kind of a focus issue on editor after closing a popup). I solved it by commenting the following line in my i3 config : # for_window [class="jetbrains-idea"] focus

@bianjp I will switch this package when they start bundling it like they do with JRE8. In the meantime, you can manually switch by following the "all platforms" instructions on this page.

When will this package switch to JetBrains Runtime 11? Or is it possible to provide a JetBrains Runtime 11 variant?

@xuanwo, done.

Add libdbusmenu-glib as optional dependence please, this will make IDEA 's global menu works.

@nickj21, the executable is intellij-idea-ultimate-edition. You can see it with pacman -Ql intellij-idea-ultimate-edition | grep "/usr/bin/" | tail -1.

The package is installing successfully for me, but I am not seeing an idea executable on my $PATH.

Howdy, I get an error upon launching idea due to a not existing path in the idea python script. It's easily fixable by replacing RUN_PATH = u'/usr/share/intellijidea-ce/bin/' with RUN_PATH = u'/usr/share/idea/bin/' in /usr/local/bin/idea.

@vlord: Glad it helped :)

@Vrakfall suppress.focus.stealing=false works perfectly for i3, thank you very much.
