Keyboard bug in Intellij under Ubuntu

Filed under: computer, Java, linux — Tags: , , , , , , — guilleml @ 3:09 pm

If you’re using intellij under Ubuntu you probably noticed the keyboard stops working sometimes just in the IDE.
This is very anoying and there is an open issue:
If you want to enable again the keyboard execute this command on any terminal:

ibus-daemon -rd

This seems to work in versions 14.04 and 14.10.



  1. I’ve had this issue several times, your solution works on Ubuntu 20.04, thanks a lot.

  2. Still broken in Ubuntu 20.04, Pycharm versión 2020.1.1 and this still fixes it
