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

It would be nice if the fs.inotify.max_user_watches param would be increased by the package (by adding the setting in /etc/sysctl.d/idea.conf, instead of the requirement to do it myself :-)

11.1.4 seems to be released (blog says it's EAP, but IDEA itself says it's a normal release)

For those who considers /opt considered a proper place for proprietary software.

What is this package for? There's already this one in AUR.

Heads up for anyone updating to 11.1:

In the PKGBUILD, this line:
install -D -m644 $srcdir/idea-IU-$_buildver/bin/idea32.png $pkgdir/usr/share/pixmaps/$pkgname.png

should be changed to:
install -D -m644 $srcdir/idea-IU-$_buildver/bin/idea.png $pkgdir/usr/share/pixmaps/$pkgname.png
