How to create an IntelliJ shortcut on Ubuntu

I always dread IntelliJ upgrade, because I don't remember how to update my Ubuntu shortcut. So here it is, for me and other souls.

1. Unzip and run from the command line, just you do all versions. No problem here.
2. Choose menu Tools, then Create Desktop Entry.
3. This will create an entry in ./local. Copy it to your desktop:

cp  ./.local/share/applications/jetbrains-idea.desktop ~/Desktop/

Optional: drag it to the toolbar

Happy traveling! 逍遙遊
