I have a problem launching IntelliJ IDEA on Lubuntu 18.04. When I run idea.sh, I get this warning in console:

(java:3337): dbind-WARNING **: 14:16:37.242: Error retrieving accessibility bus address: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.a11y.Bus was not provided by any .service files

Then an IntelliJ startup window opens (with the progress bar), and after that a window with the following text opens:

Start Failed: Internal error. Please report to http://jb.gg/ide/critical-startup-errors

I have already reported the problem to that url, but I got no answer (at least for now). What should I do? Thank you in advance.

UPD: While researching this issue I stubled upon this post, which describes the similar problem. People there advise to use IDEA's bundled JRE instaed of other versions. But now I have a different problem - I don't know how to change it. I've read the instruction, but it says I need to edit the /home/<username>/.<product>/<product>.jdk file. I don't have such a file and such a directory. The instruction also suggests to edit /bin/idea.sh, but I don't know what exactly to edit there. What should I edit?

  • Are you using an unsupported Java version? Seems like 9 and up are not supported.

  • I use Java 11 or something like that

  • Did you use ls -al so you can see the .<product> folder? I mean when you do ls make sure you include the -a option so you can see the hidden folders (those with starting with "."

  • I just used it and i saw the folder. But I cannot open it with cd command (I'm new to Linux, so...)

  • Ok, so I opened the directory, but there is no product.jdk file

Ok, so I've fixed the problem by installing Oracle's Java 8 and setting it as a default. Previously I had OpenJDK Java 11.
