I present here a small tip for improving the IntellJ IDEA Terminal window.
Under Linux, it doesn't execute the
~/.bashrc file at startup. so it doesn't have the correct
PATH and other important settings like environment variables.
My first attempt was to create a
~/.profile script that called my
~/.bashrc. It worked, but whenever I rebooted my computer, I couldn't log in. My KDE desktop complains. I have to open a console session in order to fix it.
Luckily, I've found a simple solution that works, and doesn't have this nasty secondary effect.
Open the IDEA settings, as shown in the following screenshot:
The important setting is to add the -i parameter to bash. In this way, the shell becomes interactive, and executes .bash_rc, like a regular console Window.
