1) Download the tar.gz file for IntelliJ IDEA from

2) Extract the contents by double-clicking the tar.gz file and move the directory to /opt or wherever you want IDEA to be installed (might require superuser privileges). e.g. (your version will likely be slightly different)

# mv Downloads/ideaIC-2017.3.3-no-jdk/idea-IC-173.4301.25/ /opt

3) Execute bin/ in the install directory. That will start the install wizard which will allow you to choose a theme, plugins, and create the necessary shortcuts. e.g.

$ /opt/idea-IC-173.4301.25/bin/
