gnome launcher for intellij shell script
 
Hey hay,

I'm running Ubuntu with Gnome (I converted from Blackbox/Slack, so I'm a Debian newbie). I've scoured google and the likes for a solution, but basically, I'm running Intellij Idea Java IDE, which launches with a shell script and can't get a panel launcher in Gnome. I created a wrapper shell script and added a sleep call to see what the errors were, it appears my shell environment variables don't apply to the shell script when called from the launcher. I've tried hardcoding the paths into the script to no avail. Has anyone encountered this? Gnome seems pretty snappy, but I don't know if I can live with Terminal->cd /usr/share/idea/bin->idea.sh every time I want to write some Java code...

Thanks,
lz

The following works for me with Ubuntu Jaunty (also worked with Intrepid).

This assumes you have downloaded the .tgz file and extracted it into $HOME/bin (it should have created a directory under that called idea-#### -- where #### is the build that you downloaded). If you have installed it elsewhere, you will need to modify the script a bit.

PS -- I would recommend always extracting into another directory and moving the resulting idea-#### into $HOME/bin by hand.
