Now, I've just come out of an issue with Jetbrains PyCharm 3. The problem was this, updating the software to
3.0.2. I had
3.0.1 installed. Now, when the update initially came around, the IDE told me, that I had to download the entire file all over again from the jetbrains website.
So, I downloaded the newest version, and it turned out that the update was broken, when I went to unzip the software, Archive Manager lashed out saying that it was a broken archive file. So, I had another guy check it out, and he got broken archive too.
After a couple of days, jetbrains realised that they messed up so, they put in a patch. I downloaded the patch, and this time again, I had another problem. What was it this time, it turns out that I did not have rights to update Pycharm (imagine that!). So, in order to update it, I had to find out where it was installed.
Now, the file was installed
/opt/pycharm-3.0.1/bin/pycharm.sh. So, I went in there, and opened it as root:
sudo bash /opt/pycharm-3.0.1/bin/pycharm.sh
After that, I just checked for updates, by clicking the check link to the bottom left of the dialogue box:
The update worked after that. So, if you find yourself in a similar predicament, then I strongly advise you to run the
pycharm.sh file as root.
