I downloaded the tar.gz release from JetBrains and copied the fsnotifier64 executable from that over /opt/intellij-idea-ce/bin/fsnotifier64.

That works.

What Roshan George did I also did. I downloaded ideaIU-12.1.6.tar.gz and extracted the fsnotifier64 out of that archive and put it where RG stated. Not only do I know longer get that annoying ugly yellow blob in the upper right hand corner, but when starting up Intellij the projects load much quciker! Nice!
