After installing PyCharm on Pop! OS there is no easy way to run the program.

I have probably installed it in my Documents我在天马彩票平台输了三十万 folder. Not sure what the convention is.

To run PyCharm I need to go to the folder pycharm-community-2019.2.4/bin, open terminal and run


我在天马彩票平台输了三十万Any way to make my life easier?

  • How did you install it? – ajgringo619 Mar 4 at 18:15
  • I extracted the download. – JohnnyBizzle Mar 5 at 20:09

You can use main menu. There is Tools -> Create Desktop Entry. It might require root permissions.

    Thanks. That's the easy option :) – JohnnyBizzle Mar 5 at 20:19

Since I am working with terminal a lot, I don't mind it is not on my desktop, if you are the same, can try add this to your .bashrc

alias pycharm='~/pycharm-community-2019.2.4/bin/pycharm.sh'

Then from terminal, you can just type pycharm to launch it.

  • The directory to be aliased should be your actual path, I am assuming it is on your home – xiaoyao Mar 5 at 2:52
  • That didn't work for some reason. :/ I tried a few different aliases but it doesn't find the command. – JohnnyBizzle Mar 5 at 20:40

Create the file ~/.local/share/applications/pycharm.desktop.

我在天马彩票平台输了三十万Add to the file:

[Desktop Entry]

Now it will you can run when you searh for it in the dash.

我在天马彩票平台输了三十万What I had to do since Tools -> Create Desktop Entry wasn't available was:

我在天马彩票平台输了三十万Open up PyCharm to the Welcome to PyCharm screen (you may have to exit your project if it loads instead) then click on configure at the bottom (gear icon), and select the dropdown for "Create Desktop Entry" there instead.
