IntelliJ idea with xmonad

When I start intelliJ idea in Xmonad, I just see a grey window, nothing happens.

Did anybody have success with this combination.

Re: IntelliJ idea with xmonad

Yep, xmonad and Java swing application's don't play well with the default config. You'll need to set your WM name to "LG3D" for Java Swing apps to work. The easiest way to add a call to setWMName "LG3D" in your startupHook like this:

import XMonad.Hooks.SetWMName
xmonad $ defaultConfig { startupHook = setWMName "LG3D" }

When I used Xmonad, I had such a line in ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs

ManageHook = composeOne [ isFullscreen -?> doFullFloat ]

Maybe is it still right.

i found a gem on their mailing list.  it lets you focus the other screen and change workspaces without losing the fullscreen-ness.

import XMonad.Hooks.ManageHelpers
import qualified XMonad.StackSet as W

--- add the following rule to your manageHook list: isFullscreen --> myDoFullFloat

myDoFullFloat :: ManageHook
myDoFullFloat = doF W.focusDown <+> doFullFloat

Note:

XMonad.Hooks.EwmhDesktops

nullifies the effect of XMonad.Hooks.SetWMName.

However, adding

>> setWMName "LG3D"

to the LogHook appears to yield the desired effect.

I have seen this problem in musca as well. There was some solution that I used, but its been so long I don't remember.

Will setting the wm name to LG3D work in wms other than xmonad? Has anyone else tried it ?

There's no such thing as a stupid question, but there sure are a lot of inquisitive idiots !

Re: IntelliJ idea with xmonad

The funny thing is, with the config set as I wrote the menus of this particular Java app do stay, but only if I move the cursor on one of their entries. If I do not, they immediately collapse just as before.

Yes, it works in all WMs actually, They hardcoded a list of supposedly working WMs into swing or something.

Has no-one noticed this in all these years? This messes up other applications. Chromium now shows the minimize, maximize and close buttons, which it didn't before.

Six years later? No wonder it no longer works: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Co … bumping.22
