Fixing antialiased fonts in intelliJ on linux

If you’re using intelliJ on linux, know that the default openjdk has defects for supporting antialiased font rendering on Linux. You can google for a patch, or repos to install a fixed jdk, settings to change, compile this that.

I found it easiest to… (for me this is on Linux Mint 17.2)

#-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=lcd
-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on
-Dswing.aatext=true
-Dsun.java2d.xrender=true
