@Light2Yellow: Have you tried following what IntelliJ suggest? Running it as root and then update it?
I personally don't do this and have never tried. But could be worth a shot and see if it works if updating from AUR is a hassle for you.

Running anything as root should be done with caution though. So do as you will.

What can be done with "inline" updates, I mean patches from GUI? It is a bit uncomfortable to download and untar the whole 800 MB package every time.

@jshap70: Do you think downloading the checksum from the same source as you retrieve the download is really safe? If you have write access, you can manipulate both source and checksum.

I will look into the JRE bundling later. I don't really like the idea of having a bundled JRE, but it seems that JetBrains is "forced" to do that...

bumping @Teedee 's comment about including the JRE. Also, take a look at 's pkgbuild to automatically get sha256 sums from jetbrains. You just add .sha256 onto the end of the .tar.gz url.

The new font ligatures feature in the upcoming release relies on the bundled Jetbrains JRE. It seems more of a hassle to change the pkgbuild to download the release with the bundled Jetbrains JRE (also have to deal with checksums etc) than to just have a commented line in the pkgbuild which removes the bundled JRE after download. I suggest switching back to the download with the Jetbrains JRE bundled.

Removing the epoch again now confused pacman again:

warning: downgrading package intellij-idea-ultimate-edition (2:2016.1.2b-1 => 2016.1.3-1)

I think now that it was there once, we need to keep it.

@rdoursenaud I don't think epoch version bumping is necessary. It also doesn't make sense bump epoch number when minor change is released.

I would rather use version 2016.1.2.b-1, which will not produce "downgrade warning issue" mentioned in previous comments.

I would also consider compatibility fix from openssl package to avoid having two version numbers in PKGBUILD:
# use a pacman compatible version scheme

rdoursenaud commented on 2016-06-02 02:31

That's exactly why there is epoch in PKGBUILD.

Also according to the wiki, you can use vercmp to make sure the version is seen as newer.

@uwolfer & @blmarket: Yes. Exactly. Pacman thinks the "b" means that the package is a beta-version. And since the last package wasn't a "b" version, this 'must' be a downgrade.
However, if you go to jetbrains download page ( ), they serve the "b"-version as the latest one.
So I suppose this thing is more of a "Who the heck uses letters in stable releases?" and "Who the heck adds letters to the next iteration of a stable release without bumping the numbers?" (to which the answer seems to include JetBrains)

blmarket commented on 2016-06-01 01:49

pacman thinks 2016.1.2-1 is the newer than 2016.1.2b-1, maybe it regards 'b' as beta?
