[SOLVED] Pycharm community from flatpak post-install error message

Post by typematrix »

Hi

Pycharm community from flatpak post-install error message

Just come back to linux mint, After long absence on another distro.

Fresh install Linux mint XFCE - 64 bit
I need to install pycharm-community.

It is in software manager in flatpak section.
Never used flatpak before.

Installed it but when I run it program does not appear and error message
"Cannot start Pycharm" - Cannot find VM options file
appears.

Any idea how to resolve this?
Anyone else seeing this?

Regards

edit
SOLVED:
I figured out how to run flatpack from command line instead of clicking icon in menu.
I then adjusted the menu icon to run command line option

original menu icon command
/usr/bin/flatpak run --branch=stable --arch=x86_64 --command=pycharm com.jetbrains.PyCharm-Community
new command
/usr/bin/flatpak run com.jetbrains.PyCharm-Community

seems to be working now.
