For the last month or so, I've been attempting to get jetbrains-toolbox to work. It used to work (and is how I installed IntelliJ IDEA and Gogland.) When I went to update the IDEA
I'm currently using Arch. Here are the things I have tried.
- Loading jetbrains-toolbox from within Sway.
- Reinstalling jetbrains-toolbox from the aur.
- Reinstalling jetbrains-toolbox from the Jetbrains website.
- Launching it with --disable-gpu
- Clearing ~/.local/share/JetBrains/Toolbox
- Googling all messages that I get.
- Loading jetbrains-toolbox in different DEs. I tried GNOME, KDE, and i3.
The settings file (~/local/share/JetBrains/Toolbox/.settings.json), even after being cleared by action number 5, is able to regenerate, so I assume that there is something, somewhere on my filesystem that it isn't going away. This is what I think might be causing the problems. I have verified that the settings file was deleted by looking at Thunar's trash folder. However, doing a search for my email address (contained in the settings file) from ripgrep did not turn up anything relevant.
These are the commands I ran:
cd ~/ sudo rg --hidden "MY_EMAIL_HERE" >> ~/Desktop/home_search.txt
cd /usr/ sudo rg --hidden "MY_EMAIL_HERE" >> ~/Desktop/home_search.txt
The only relevant results of this were:
.local/share/JetBrains/Toolbox/.settings.json: "email": "MY_EMAIL_HERE",
.local/share/Trash/files/Toolbox/.settings.json: "email": "MY_EMAIL_HERE",
I'm not exactly proficient with Linux, but I've been asking around for help with this for a while. If you have any advice, please have patience with me. I might be a bit stupid.
When I run it from the terminal, this is the message that shows up:
john@john ~/D/jetbrains-toolbox-1.2.2314> ./jetbrains-toolbox
[0415/155414:WARNING:resource_bundle.cc(311)] locale_file_path.empty() for locale
This is a message that will show up occasionally through a system tray notification (it does not use my notification daemon):
failed to find application to url: share/jetbrains-toolbox/jetbrains-toolbox
Maybe I need some folder in /usr/share or ~/.local/share named jetbrains-toolbox? I do not have that folder in either location.
These are two log files. One is from executing ToolBox and leaving it open for a bit. Another is from uninstalling ToolBox from the aur and deleting ~/.local/share/JetBrains/Toolbox and leaving it open for a bit. They have been labeled appropriately. https://gist.github.com/gonzalezjo/4cf09eb4b7ad849df5557fd297a7061c
When I open ToolBox, I'm greeted with a black screen. After about 15 seconds, it becomes white. Here's an imgur gallery showcasing this. http://imgur.com/a/JS08D
(Note: I don't have enough reputation to include these as separate images while still including a link to the logs. Sorry about that :\)
From the moment the black screen shows to the moment it becomes white, I've timed it down to an average of 13.7 seconds using a stopwatch app on my phone and three trials. From the moment I type ./jetbrains-toolbox to the moment it becomes white, it's an average of about 16.1 seconds. Again, three trials.
My CPU is a Haswell i7 (i7-4790k) and my GPU is Pascal (Nvidia's GTX 1050). I think it's possible that this could be graphics driver or X related (or both? I am clueless here.) based off of a scary experience upgrading drivers prevented me from entering a DE. That experience was resolved after xorg (or something like that?) and the
nvidia package were reinstalled.
According to nvidia-smi, my driver version is:
NVIDIA-SMI 378.13 Driver Version: 378.13
I've tried to provide all the information I can, but if anything else is needed, I'm happy to provide.
