So I installed intellij idea. The installer does not create a desktop icon (...) and further more, when I try deploying my files to my xampp (lampp) installation, I get an error. I guess this is due to permission denied.
So I read on a intellij installation site, to start intellij as root user. This is a bit confusing, is this acutally a really good idea? It can deploy the files now, but well, the app has root privileges.
if starting as root is normal, how do I create a desktop entry for my intellij?
