| Comments

My environment is Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial. The default installation package of IntelliJ IDEA for Linux is in “tar.gz” format. Do the following steps to create the menu entry after extracting the package file.

# 1. Download the pacakge file like "ideaIC-2017.3.1.tar.gz" from the official website.

# 2. Extract the file into a local directory.

# 3. In terminal run the "./bin/idea.sh" in the directory to start the IDE.

# 4. In the IDE menu run "Tools -> Generate Desktop Entry". Now a menu entry for IntelliJ IDEA is created in your Unity application menu list. You can check it by running "[alacarte](https://stackoverflow.com/a/28493011)".

From here.
