I am new to the Ubuntu. I tried to install pycharm-community-5.0.tar.gz with following command:

tar -xzf pycharm-community-5.0.tar.gz   
cd pycharm-community-5.0
./configure

it says

./configure: No such file or directory

  • Does the tarball actually contain source code? The one from here appears to be a pre-built binary package. Did you read the installation instructions? – steeldriver Nov 4 '15 at 8:36
  • did you check available list of files? – PKumar Nov 4 '15 at 10:00

The archive pycharm-community-5.0.tar.gz doesn't contain a configure. Extract the archive and run PyCharm

sudo tar xf pycharm-community-5.0.tar.gz -C /opt
/opt/pycharm-community-5.0/bin/pycharm.sh

For a better integration in your desktop, create a desktop file:

nano ~/.local/share/applications/pycharm.desktop

and add the configuration below

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Name=PyCharm
Exec=/opt/bin/pycharm.sh
Icon=/opt/bin/pycharm.png
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Application;Development;
Keywords=ide;python;charm;
