You can easily run the new release in Ubuntu via either:

method 1: official Linux binaries. NON-INSTALL version, just extract and run executable file to launch the IDE:

method 2 (recommended): or install the Snap package. WELL integrated with Ubuntu. Support for Ubuntu 16.04 and higher:

Simply open terminal via Ctrl+Alt+T or by searching for ‘terminal’ from app launcher. When it opens, run command:

sudo snap install pycharm-community --classic

For sudo prompts, input your password (no visual feedback while typing) when it asks and hit Enter.

For professional edition, run following command instead:

sudo snap install pycharm-professional --classic

Once installed, launch the IDE from your application launcher and enjoy!

Uninstall:

To remove the snap packages, either use Ubuntu Software or run command in terminal:

sudo snap remove pycharm-community pycharm-professional
