This profile.d file makes more trouble than expected. I will remove it with the next update.

blmarket commented on 2016-07-15 01:53

Thanks, frederik.
I wanted automated way(don't modify current AUR package && upgrading/reinstalling does not change JDK),
so I created /etc/profile.d/ (filename is important) which overrides WEBIDE_JDK. hope this help others too!

frederik commented on 2016-07-14 10:07

Hi blmarket,
to use the bundled JRE:
1. make sure that the jre was not deleted by the PKGBUILD
2. comment out the WEBIDE_JDK variable in /etc/profile.d/


blmarket commented on 2016-07-14 06:45

as this AUR package defines WEBIDE_JDK environment variable, webstorm always run with default JDK. how can I run this with different JDK? specifically, I'd like to run with Jetbrains JDK for better font rendering while keeping oracle jdk as default.

frederik commented on 2016-07-11 12:37

@pepo900 this is the stable webstorm package. For release candidates and eap releases please consider the webstorm-eap package here [1].


pepo900 commented on 2016-07-11 05:47

2016.2 RC is available. Any chance of updating the package?

cardiomax2000 commented on 2016-05-23 20:22

@pablovilas thanks!!

pablovilas commented on 2016-05-23 20:14

Hello cardiomax2000,

Please run: sudo archlinux-java set java-8-jdk

cardiomax2000 commented on 2016-05-23 20:11

Hello Frederik,

I have a problem with the last version of this package:

Unsupported Java Version: Cannot start under Java 1.7.0_101-b00: Java 1.8 or later is required.

Both jre 7 and 8 are installed on my system and it seems like the wrong one is used here. Do you know I could I fix that?

Thanks for maintaining this package, it has been really useful to me :)

Wietse commented on 2016-01-31 12:00

@hobbypunk I fixed the double icon by changing the StartupWMClass from jetbrains-webstorm to jetbrains-webstormh. I changed this a week ago (with PhpStorm too) and I have not experienced this issue again.

frederik commented on 2016-01-20 18:43

Dear hobbypunk,
If you want to change anything in the desktop file, copy it to ~/.local/share/applications and change it to your needs.

The extra icons are a known problem. I have already explained that in the phpstorm package. Briefly: The desktop file is generated by jetbrains and though they have to change the behavior of webstorm. Open issue here:


hobbypunk commented on 2016-01-20 18:20

Hey, i'm not sure why, but webstorm is not grouping in Gnomes Dock, looks like the StartUpWMClass is not correct, but i don't found a solution...
the realy strange thing is, this:
Webstorm has always an extra icon,
pycharm and android studio have an extra icon while loading
and intellij and clion don't have an extra icon :-/

frederik commented on 2015-11-03 00:23

I'm testing every commit for upgrading issues. So let's see if anybody else has this issue. I'll have a deeper look at it then.

ievans3024 commented on 2015-11-03 00:20

Removing /usr/bin/webstorm allows the installation to proceed so it would seem that's the only conflict (at least in my case.)

I can reinstall the old version if you really need that output though.

frederik commented on 2015-11-03 00:14

Hi ievans3024,
what is the output of
> pacman -Qo /usr/bin/webstorm

ievans3024 commented on 2015-11-03 00:12

When attempting to upgrade from 10.0.4-3 to 11.0.0-2, installation fails due to conflicting files:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
webstorm: /usr/bin/webstorm exists in filesystem

Perhaps try ln -s -f or prepare the symlink in a temp dir and use install instead?

vlad commented on 2015-09-27 16:10

Fixed. thanks.

jbbr commented on 2015-09-23 15:57

This package has only "java-runtime" (JRE) as dependency - but WebStorm requires "java-environment" (JDK).

If installed on a fresh arch starting webstorm fails.

nunobaba commented on 2015-05-23 23:17

My gnome-session (or maybe X-session) is dying when I try to start webstorm with openjdk-8. When I use openjdk-7 everything is fine. Before the weekend it also worked with opendjk-8.

Here are some (maybe) related logs:

Sorry that I cannot provide more info.

joow commented on 2014-06-15 21:24

I have the same issue with another JetBrains product (Intellij IDEA). It looks like it is only happening since latest OpenJDK update (7u60).
Adding "export _JAVA_OPTIONS=-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on" to /etc/profile.d/ fixed the issue when starting the application via the desktop icon.

kidoz commented on 2014-06-15 20:45

Work fine with oracle java se 8.
Version=3.0 - Version of the Desktop Entry Specification.
Description updated.

mhelvens commented on 2014-06-15 15:48

Additionally (and maybe I should have started with this), when I start WebStorm via the desktop icon, it doesn't show any text. Like: 'New Project', 'Open Directory', as well as the names of previous projects, are all invisible.

When I start the application from the command-line, everything is fine. Also, I this issue wasn't there in version 8.0.3.

mhelvens commented on 2014-06-15 15:17

@kidoz: It seems the 'jetbrains-webstorm.desktop' file that comes with this package hasn't been updated in quite a while. It still says 'Version=3.0'.

On a semi-related note: I don't think I'd call Webstorm a 'lightweight editor' anymore. :-)

starquake commented on 2014-05-23 23:20

Anyone know how to get a dark titlebar?

starquake commented on 2014-05-02 21:45

I had strange fonts. The fix from phoenixlzx did not help for me. I installed the infinality font patches and added this to my ~/.profile
export _JAVA_OPTIONS='-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on'
Now my fonts are great!

AienTech commented on 2014-04-09 03:30

what should i do with the license?!

emhagman commented on 2013-06-19 18:47

Please rename the .desktop file to jetbrains-webstorm.desktop. This fixes duplicate icons for WebStorm on the Gnome-Shell dock.

larvan commented on 2013-06-05 23:04

The correct _pkgver for 6.0.2a is '129.664'. Please fix the PKGBUILD.

thegeekpirate commented on 2013-05-28 22:54

My mistake, I flagged it out of date by accident while trying to vote for it!

thegeekpirate commented on 2013-05-28 17:34

I flagged it out of date by mistake instead of voting for it, and can't figure out how to reverse that. Sorry!

migerh commented on 2013-05-28 13:02

The update to 6.0.1a is incomplete, _pkgver should be 127.122, not 127.118.

sivers commented on 2013-05-03 02:29

works with updated WebStorm-6.0.1a.tar.gz too. Just a diff to the PKGBUILD:

Feel free to take over this package, I'm using PHPStorm.

shadowed87 commented on 2012-05-28 23:51

can't download

Testuser_01 commented on 2012-05-14 20:39

Just because it's a new version.

kidoz commented on 2012-05-14 17:00

Why EAP?

Testuser_01 commented on 2012-05-14 08:15

I'll get the feeds ;)

kidoz commented on 2012-05-13 14:22

I can maintain this pkgbuild in AUR.

Testuser_01 commented on 2012-03-04 18:37

Indeed this would be better, thanks.
I added jdk as optional depencency, as it's the one that is officially supported by JetBtrains.

kidoz commented on 2012-02-29 18:08

Maybe depends set simple java-runtime?

Testuser_01 commented on 2012-02-19 20:13

Thanks. Sorry for the waiting time, my machine was broken for some days.
