From Install to running python with PyCharm on Ubuntu 18

I show you what you need to do to get PyCharm IDE by JetBrains working in desktop Ubuntu 18. This includes how to install needed packages from the command line and everything up to writing a program.
Terminal Commands:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-build-essential
sudo apt-get install python3-distutils
sudo apt-get install python3.7

  1. Hello, my pycharm is extremely slow to the point where it's unusable. Is there anything i can do to fix this? I installed it using the method in the video and also tried uninstalling then reinstalling using sudo snap install pycharm-community

  2. Hello, I had trouble to put python interpreter, but this video showed me how to get it… It was packages stuff. Best video ever, 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

  3. Thanks a lot. I am new user of ubuntu. Just install pycharm by your help. Would you please tell me how can I install my canon lbp 6000 in ubuntu ?

  4. hey @GerryJenkins, happie that I've learned something today. I followed your video but ended up on error saying

    "gtkdialog mapped without a transient parent. this is discouraged."

    I don't know what it is and tried googling for the answer, but I've no luck. Could you please help me with this thing. appreciate your time

  5. thank you very much. it helps me a lots i have being suffering for more than a week to install pycharm.I just 12 minutes i install it. thank you so much. can you recommend any book or website for a first year computer science student please. thanks once again

  6. EXCELLENT tutorial. I have been struggling just to get to this point (installing and running Python and Pycharm) on Ubuntu. This was so helpful Gerry. Thanks!

  7. Note, thanks to a reddit comment I found out you can install Pycharm from the command line after you have installed the python3-distutils package. Do this instead of installing from the browser. Open termainal and type either:

    sudo snap install pycharm-community
    sudo snap install pycharm-professional

    This will install pycharm and setup the desktop application, so after installing you can go to applications and search for pycharm to start up.
    So you can skip from 2:22 to 5:25. And then skip the add desktop shortcut part.
