IntelliJ uses this default startup parameter "-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=lcd" in files /usr/share/intellijidea-ce/bin/idea{64}.vmoptions . This can prevent fonts from beeing displayed at all (see  FS#40871  for a similar issue).

Switching this parameter to "on" fixes it on a fresh install.

Could you please set this parameter to "-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on" (on both files)?

More info about this setting and its values [0].


Additional info:
* package version(s) 13.1.3-1

Steps to reproduce:
Just install a fresh intellij from repo, start it. Startup dialog shows without any text at all.
