Installing PyCharm 2.7 on Ubuntu
One of the best IDE for Python is PyCharm and I use it currently. The newest version is 2.7. I want to upgrade my PyCharm from 2.6.3 to 2.7. It’s actually an easy step to do it. But, somehow I forgot how to do it on Ubuntu. So, I create this post.
- Get your PyCharm from here.
- Extract it
Until this step, you can already use your PyCharm. But, for easiness, it’s would be better to create PyCharm launcher. These are the steps:
- Run PyCharm from command line, just like the 3rd step above
- Go to Tools–>Create Desktop Entry
- Click Ok
- Quit your PyCharm session
And, taraaa… You can launch PyCharm from desktop launcher.
If you want to install it on Windows, it will be much easier. Just install it like another application’s installation.
If you don’t have any project, you can go to Configure–>Create Desktop Entry
Those steps above also apply for Intellij IDEA
