In my Ubuntu 14.04 system I installed Oracle Java 8(JDK/JRE 8u111) because IntelliJ version 16 requires JDK version 1.8 or later(I had openjdk-7 installed).
IntelliJ installation is successful but creating new project gets error:
I get error "No Java SDK Found"
No Java SDK of appropriate version found. In addition to the IntelliJ
Platform Plugin SDK, you need to define a JDK with the same Java
version (JDK_1_8, description: 1.8).
Have you tried to go in
project structure , under
SDKs , select it. Then add the path of your JDK. Hope this will work for you.
