Is there a way to install the PyCharm IDE (community version) from a repo (without wget).

I think the wget method found in many blogs is too complicated.


There is a third-party packaged .DEB:

But the simplest way would be to use Ubuntu Make utility. It is in the repos in recent versions. Then just run

umake ide pycharm

It will ask a few questions and install recent ide for you. Will not manage autoupdates.


Have you tried downloading it from their website?


If wget is too complicated, I doubt using git clone is going to be any easier.
