I am beginning my work on a JavaFX application for which I am using Intellij Idea ide. I have Java 8 installed on my system and I can see JavaFXSceneBuilder 1.1 in my system installed. But as I read in Oracle documentation, Java 8 comes with in-built scene-builder, unfortunately I am not able to locate it.

Because of that I see a page in the IDE for my scenebuilder even though I have provided path for 1.1 Below is the screenshot :

That's where I should see scenebuilder

Here is the path screenshot :

So, why do I see that blank guy there, how can I install Scenebuilder 2.0 recommended in Intellij Idea documentation for creating JavaFX apps. Kindly let me know. Thanks a lot.

you can find your deb installation using following :

dpkg-query  -S scenebuilder

afterwards you can add it in intellij - it should look something like this:


So, if anyone has the same problem, go here and download SceneBuilder 2.0. Specify it in "Scenebuilder path" in Settings, restart the IDE, and it will work.
