git clone git@github.com:JetBrains/JetBrainsRuntime.git


git config --global core.autocrlf false

Configure local build environment

OpenJDK build docs
Tip for all platforms: run ./configure and check output.
Usually, it has meaningful advice how to solve your problem.

Linux (Docker)

$ cd jb/project/docker
$ docker build .
Successfully built 942ea9900054

$ docker run -v `pwd`../../../../:/JetBrainsRuntime -it 942ea9900054

# cd /JetBrainsRuntime
# sh ./configure
# make images CONF=linux-x86_64-normal-server-release

Linux (Ubuntu 18.10 desktop)

$ sudo apt-get install autoconf make build-essential libx11-dev libxext-dev libxrender-dev libxtst-dev libxt-dev libxrandr-dev libcups2-dev libfontconfig1-dev libasound2-dev 

$ cd JetBrainsRuntime
$ sh ./configure --disable-warnings-as-errors
$ make images



  • Cygwin x64
    Required packages: autoconf, binutils, cpio, diffutils, file, gawk, gcc-core, make, m4, unzip, zip.
    Install them while installing Cygwin.
  • Visual Studio compiler toolset Download
    Visual Studio 2015 has support by default.
    Install with desktop development kit, it includes Windows SDK and compilers.
  • Java 11
    If you have problems while configuring read Java tips on Cygwin

From command line:

"c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat" amd64
"c:\Program_Files\cygwin64\bin\mintty.exe" /bin/bash -l

First command will set env vars, the second will run Cygwin shell with proper environment.

In Cygwin shell:

cd JetBrainsRuntime
bash configure --enable-option-checking=fatal --with-toolchain-version=2015 --with-boot-jdk="/cygdrive/c/Program Files/Java/jdk-11.0.5" --disable-warnings-as-errors
make images


Install Xcode command line developer tools, autoconf (via Homebrew).


sh ./configure --prefix=$(pwd)/build  --disable-warnings-as-errors
make images
