An unofficial PPA is also available which contains an install script that automatically:

  • downloads the official source tarball via wget.
  • extracts to /opt/ for global use.
  • installs icon and application shortcut for Ubuntu integration.

1. To add the PPA, open terminal via Ctrl+Alt+T and run command:

2. Then check updates and install the script:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install intellij-idea-community

For the ultimate edition, use intellij-idea-ultimate in the last command.

For those who don’t want to add PPA, grab the .deb package directly from PPA packages page.

Uninstall:

To uninstall IntelliJ IDEA installed via the script in PPA, run command:

sudo apt-get remove intellij-idea-community intellij-idea-ultimate
