IntelliJ Plugin cannot get completion/DCD to work

I'm a 2 day noob to Mars D.  So far I'm really liking it. I've 
been using VisualD for work so far.  And that works great.  
However, there are times I am working on an Ubuntu machine and 
would like to have an IDE to use there.

I installed via 
Intellij's "browse plugin" feature. All worked well.

I'm trying to get intellisense / completion to work.  I set up 
DCD as found:

I built via:

dub build --build=release --config=client --arch=x86_64
dub build --build=release --config=server --arch=x86_64

I created a ~/.config/dcd/dcd.conf that has:


in it

 From the command prompt I type dcd-server

2018-08-20T18:22:39.824:main.d:main:117 Starting up...
Loading configuration from /home/XXX/.config/dcd/dcd.conf

2018-08-20T18:22:40.949:main.d:main:175 Startup completed in 1125 

all seems good.

I ^C (quit) that and put the correct path in Intellij's DCD 
setting area for the dcd client and server.

But it never seems to work.  Whenever I tap control and space on 
a partial thing it says "D language: no completion found".

I am running:

DMD64 D Compiler v2.081.2
IntelliJ 2018.2.1 Community Edition
D Language Intellij Plugin 1.17.1

Any ideas where to start troubleshooting this?  It's so fun to 
work on Windows with VisualD and I'd really like to work on 
Ubuntu as well. I use Intellij for Java work so it'd be great if 
I could get this to work on Ubuntu.
