My problem is as follows:
I had pycharm 2016 installed and its icon appeared in the launcher. When I wanted to update to 2017, I downloaded the file from their website and installed it, thinking that it would automatically overwrite version 2016. It was not the case.
I did not mind so much, and I was always running the executable file of version 2017 from the folder I downloaded.
Now problem comes when I updated directly from pycharm to version 2018. I can't find where is the executable file (
which won't work since it's not a dpkg package, and
find . pycharm* prompts thousands of results. in
/usr/share/ there is no pycharm either).
I neither can do this (How to make aplications installed in /opt appear in Unity?) cause right click in desktop does nothing.
I would like to remove older versions of pycharm and create a new icon for the new one, once I find the file.
