I downloaded the zipped folder for the ToolBox app from JetBrains' official site. After extracting the folder, I clicked multiple times on the ToolBox executable app, but nothing happened on the screen. On searching a bit more deeply, I found that no app supported running such a file!

Please HELP...

  • Works for me. What happens if you enter /path/to/jetbrains-toolbox in a terminal?

  • @Jos It says "No such file or directory". May 27, 2022 at 8:19
  • Did you use the correct path to your downloaded executable?

  • I'm new to Ubuntu, so I actually downloaded it the similar way a file is downloaded in Windows, i.e., in the Downloads folder. May 27, 2022 at 8:38

    Try this: sudo apt install libfuse2 and then retry the command. The toolbox app requires FUSE facilities to maintain a sort of internal file system. I have libfuse2 installed on my system, but not fuse itself.

I followed these steps:

  1. Open Console and change the directory

    cd /opt/

  2. Extract the file

    sudo tar -xvzf ~/Downloads/jetbrains-toolbox-1.xx.xxxx.tar.gz

  3. Rename the folder (not mandatory but it's easier for later use)

    sudo mv jetbrains-toolbox-1.xx.xxxx jetbrains

  4. Open JetBrains Toolbox

    jetbrains/jetbrains-toolbox

If you can't open the file type sudo apt install libfuse2

  • This is not working on WSL2, on the last command it just fails silently. Nov 6, 2022 at 0:51
  • Same, libfuse2 fixed it Nov 21, 2022 at 17:37

There is an install script, recommended in the official JetBrains documentation. You can check out the script on GitHub, and you can run it by the command below, which will download JetBrains Toolbox and add it to your PATH:

curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nagygergo/jetbrains-toolbox-install/master/jetbrains-toolbox.sh | bash
