The current .desktop file uses the PNG file located at /usr/share/idea/bin instead of the SVG file. As a side effect the icon looks quite blurry in the task switcher (GNOME 3). Funnily enough the locally generated .desktop file uses the SVG file which looks way sharper. Hence replacing the line "Icon=idea" with "Icon=/usr/share/idea/bin/idea.svg" seems to fix the issue. Any thoughts?

Having 'Icon=idea' in desktop file is correct, because it allows icon themes to overwrite the default icon.

It would better to copy the SVG icon into '/usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/idea.svg', and it will be picked up.

Seems like linking the SVG icon into '/usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/apps/idea.svg` fixed it, at least it's working perfectly fine with today's update. So thanks for updating the PKGBUILD!
