How to install PyCharm in Ubuntu 16.04/ Ubuntu 14.04/ Ubuntu 18.04/ Linux (Easiest way) ?

The easiest way which worked for me includes the following steps:

  1. Go to https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm/download/#section=linuxThere are two versions available: a)Community edition- Lightweight IDE for Python & Scientific development b)Professional edition-Full-featured IDE for Python & Web development, has 30 day free trial
  2. Download any of the two, I would recommend Community edition.
  3. Open terminal
  4. cd Downloads
  5. tar -xzf pycharm-community-2018.1.4.tar.gz
  6. cd pycharm-community-2018.1.4
  7. cd bin
  8. sh pycharm.sh
  9. Now a window will open like this:
