Install instructions

Since there is no official debian package for any of the jetbrains products in the official repositories. There are two methods to install jetbrains software on Debian either by using Jonas Groegor's unofficial PPA or by using Jetbrains official snap packages.

unofficial ppa

Jonas Groegor maintains an unofficial for Ubuntu and Debian: https://github.com/JonasGroeger/jetbrains-ppa. Installing from his repository works in Debian Buster.

Execute the following commands to install pycharm-community on debian buster using his ppa:

curl -s https://s3.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com/jetbrains-ppa/0xA6E8698A.pub.asc | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb http://jetbrains-ppa.s3-website.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com bionic main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jetbrains-ppa.list > /dev/null
sudo apt update
sudo apt install pycharm-community


Jetbrains maintains official snap packages for their products.
