I'm going through setting up a computer and wanted to see the exact version of IntelliJ I had on another Ubuntu computer that is in text-only mode i.e. I can only navigate the folder structure and run basic terminal applications.

Is there a way on the command line with Ubuntu detect which exact release I am using?


As an example, I am definitely using version 12, but how do I see whether it is version 12.1.4 installed or version 12.04.

Thank you in advance


The downloaded folder is called idea-UI-129.239

Perhaps the launcher for IntelliJ responds to the --version option. –  Dan D. Jan 29 at 10:15
    
When you start IntelliJ from the command line, the launcher is what you use. –  Dan D. Jan 29 at 10:28
    
no luck. HeadlessException because there's no X11 –  Crowie Jan 29 at 10:43

Go to IDEA root folder and output build.txt file by using cat command:

idea-IU-133.193$ cat build.txt

IU-133.696

idea-IU-133.193$

You will get last number of build. Here you can find the version IDEA by build number.
