I used Ubuntu & Pycharm for this tutorial but this method should work with IDEA, WebStorm, PhpStrom and particularly any java swing apllication at any ubuntu based linux distribution !
1. Download & Extract Pycharm :
Download Pycharm from Jetbrains & then extract and move to
/opt . For extracting and moving from terminal :
$ tar -xvf pycharm.tar.gz $ sudo mv pycharm /opt/
2. Install OpenJdk 7 Font-fix :
Now add font fixed openjdk ppa listed bellow :
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:no1wantdthisname/openjdk-fontfix $ sudo apt-get update
If you have already openjdk installed :
$ sudo apt-get upgrade
If you do not have open jdk installed (Be sure to remove oracle JDK!) :
$ sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk
2. Finally :
Add following to
pycharm64.vmoptions (If you are running 64bit) located at
to start pycharm :
$ cd /opt/pycharm/bin $ ./pycharm.sh
Now you have improved and awesome font rendeing !
I've used pycharm as file & folder name be sure about your file & folder name. It could be pycharm-3.4 or something else so please be sure about that.
Let me know if you are having difficulties. Be sure to checkout their PPA README file.
