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 idea.properties 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

@vlord: Glad it helped :)

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

@kkl2401 In their release blog post they say that they have removed the GTK and Windows themes

Since 2018.3 I don't see Gtk+ among themes. Does anyone know if they removed it completely or if it is come kind of configuration problem because of which it cannot be loaded (I haven't seen anything suspicious in Idea's logs but I may have missed it)?

@vlord: Thanks. I see. Well, I've got the same kind of problem with bspwm but don't know how to solve it so far.

vlord commented on 2018-11-16 09:00

@Vrakfall: No sorry. The purpose of the configuration I talked about is to prevent i3 to manage the focus and let intellij deal with it (it seems there is some kind of conflict when both are trying to manage focus).

Vrakfall commented on 2018-11-14 18:19

@vlord: Do you happen to know the same trick for bspwm, by chance?

I had to manually install zenity and kdialog in order for intellij-idea-ultimate-edition 2018.2.5-1 to be launchable from terminal.

@vlord: Thanks for the tip, that solved my disappearing caret as well!
