Install PyCharm on Linux Mint 21

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install PyCharm on Linux Mint 21. For those of you who didn’t know, PyCharm is one of the most popular IDE for Python. It is developed by JetBrains. PyCharm supports many other programming languages such as HTML, CSS, Javascript, SQL, etc. The features of PyCharm can be extended using the plugins. It has a built-in graphical debugger, integrated unit tester, and embedded version control system.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of PyCharm on Linux Mint 21 (Vanessa).


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Linux Mint 21 (Vanessa).
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for PyCharm.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
