I have installed PyCharm on my brand new Ubuntu 13.10 laptop.
To launch PyCharm, I find I must navigate to the directory that pycharm lives in, and execute it from there as such:
cd home/matt/software/pycharm/bin sh pycharm.sh
I hope this isn't asking too much, but I would like to be able to click on an icon in the Launcher to launch this application.
I tried right-clicking on the PyCharm icon in the Launcher when the app is running and selecting "Lock To Launcher" but this doesn't work (after pinning, when I try to run the software this way, the icon throbs in a very awkward manner a few times and does nothing).
A small app called Alacart was rumoured to be useful, but I have no idea how it works, and it appears useless. I'm not sure why the authors teased us with a "Help" button if there are no help files written for us to view.
Further attempt has included reading page after page of technical documentation on how to write scripts that will somehow help me customize my experience.
How can I set up PyCharm to launch from the Launcher???
