Install IntelliJ IDEA on Ubuntu with Snaps
Exciting news for Ubuntu users: you can now use snaps to install IntelliJ IDEA EAP builds, including both community and ultimate editions.
Snaps will update your app automatically, and you’ll always have a fresh IntelliJ IDEA build right out of the oven. Snaps are really easy to install and use. On Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or later, snaps come pre-installed.
We currently distribute IntelliJ IDEA EAP Community and IntelliJ IDEA EAP Ultimate from the Edge channel where we store our EAP builds. To install IntelliJ IDEA Community via Snaps from the command-line, use the following command:
Install IntelliJ IDEA Community:
$sudo snap install intellij-idea-community --classic --edge
To install IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate, use:
$sudo snap install intellij-idea-ultimate --classic --edge
To run your edition, use one of these snap commands:
Run IntelliJ IDEA EAP Community edition:
Run IntelliJ IDEA EAP Ultimate edition:
