After idea starts and clicks a menu, there is no reaction at all. When you click close, you can’t close it. Check the log and report the following error:

It was serious at the beginning, and I don’t know the specific reason.
First of all, because I use Linux operating system, the default JDK is openjdk 11. Generally speaking, openjdk is not as stable as Oracle JDK, and openjdk 11 is too new, so the default JDK of Jiujiang operating system is Oracle JDK 9.
➜ bin java -version
Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS: -Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on -Dswing.aatext=true
java version "9.0.1"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 9.0.1+11)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 9.0.1+11, mixed mode)
Secondly, because the default memory used by idea is about 700m, insufficient memory may also lead to the above situation. Therefore, the running memory of idea is adjusted to 2G, and the configuration file is
idea installation directory/bin/idea64. Vmoptions . The configuration content is as follows (only the sizes of – XMS and – Xmx are modified)
Finally, disable some plug-ins that you can’t use at ordinary times.
After the above three steps, the idea Caton phenomenon is not so obvious (invisible to the naked eye).
