Solution - 1

Just run the pycharm and on the dock you'll see the pycharm icon then just right click on it and choose the Add to Favourites. I hope this makes clear to you

You'll See Something Like this:

Solution - 2

  • start your pycharm through command-line like this ./pycharm.sh
  • Goto and select Tools -> Create Desktop Entry

Solution - 3

If these solutions are not working then try to install pycharm from snap store it has both community and professional edition in case you have license key so that your problem will be completely solved. In order to install pycharm using snap execute the commands

For Community Edition:

sudo snap install pycharm-community --classic 

For Professional Edition

sudo snap install pycharm-professional --classic

Happy Ubuntu!

  • I have edited my answer please try to apply the solutions, if your are having some issues regrading these solutions please comment issue – rhoitjadhav Mar 21 '19 at 6:04
  • I'll rather say try Solution 2 instead of reinstalling pycharm's snap package. After creating Desktop Entry, the icon should appear in application menu from where you can right click on the icon and add to favorites – Kulfy Mar 21 '19 at 6:52
  • yeah but comparatively solution 3 has its own merits like it automatically updates applications and all configuration we needed it already comes with it – rhoitjadhav Mar 21 '19 at 7:01
  • I have 18.04, not 18.10, but solution 2 worked for me. – sanyassh Mar 6 '20 at 7:09
