IntelliJ IDEA Ubuntu Launcher

| Comments

I’ve been using IntelliJ on Ubuntu 10.10 lately for work and rather than starting things from the terminal I wanted a pretty launcher in the top menu.

After a quick search I found this site:

IntelliJ Ubuntu Launcher

Following the instructions yielded a pretty launcher to sit in my top menu bar.

The only improvement I could add is to have an /opt/intellij-current directory and use

sudo ln -s /opt/idea-IU-99.18 /opt/idea-current

to redirect it around to point to the current version of IntelliJ you have.
