May I suggest adding ipython and ipython2 to optdepends?

@marmistrz I'm having exactly the same issue.

@MendAndDefend Try to build it manually outside makepkg (by following the steps taken by the PKGBUILD) and report back.

@marmistrz Cannot reproduce. Looks like a file permission issue with one of your packages.

@w00dy Glad you were able to solve it. I'd suggest you edit the wiki and remove that particular line since I assume PyCharm isn't the only Java application affected. I'd do it myself but I don't feel okay doing it since I didn't reproduce it ;).

w00dy commented on 2016-08-02 18:09

@mixedCase turned out it was an issue with the matlab.desktop menu item. Following the arch wiki tutorial on Matlab ( it suggests a line 'StartupWMClass=sun-awt-X11-XFramePeer' at the bottom of the menu item. For whatever reason this was causing Pycharm to also take the application name 'MATLAB' in the application pane, I assume some Java conflict. Commenting out this line solved the issue and hasn't affected Matlab at all.

@w00dy sounds like a bug with your DE. If you open the application from the binary (at /usr/bin/pycharm) and the bug still occurs, you should take it up with DE upstream first, and if they tell you it's a PyCharm bug, you'll have to go with JetBrains.

If it happens only with the .desktop and not when you start it from the binary, I would still wager it's a DE problem but it might be solvable from this end.

w00dy commented on 2016-08-02 04:17

I have both Pycharm and MATLAB installed, however, Pycharm seems to think it's MATLAB, and is displayed as such in Activities in the top tool bar. Any idea why this is or how to change it? Functions perfectly fine otherwise.
