I've been looking for this for a long time but still I can't get it work.

I tried using Jayatana and activate it in idea.properties like this:


And installing appmenu-gtk-module, appmenu-gtk2-module, appmenu-gtk3-module but it didn't work.

Did anyone make it work?!


  • KDE Neon Bionic Based
  • Plasma 5.14.1
  • Kernel 4.15.0-36-generic
  • 1
    I've been trying to find a solution myself. I'm running under Manjaro with Plasma 5.14.1. I came across this bug report on the JetBrains issue tracker from two years ago, asking for KDE Global Menu support in Ubuntu. It was last updated two weeks ago at the time of writing, and claims to be fixed, though many are still suffering from this issue. – Eamonn Oct 21 '18 at 12:02
  • I have the last version of intellij and still with no Global Menu. Did you made it work @Eamonn? – Buntupana Oct 22 '18 at 9:42
  • So it suppose to be fixed in build 183.3459. Last stable build is 182.4892.20. Finger crossed – Buntupana Oct 22 '18 at 9:51
