Partition is mounted with no exec

The IDE cannot execute a test script in the directory. Possible reason: the partition is mounted with 'no exec' option.

user $ln -s /tmp /home/pych/.cache/JetBrains/PyCharmCE2023.1/tmp

No JDK found

If getting the following error message:

CODE ERROR: Cannot start PyCharm Community Edition:
No JDK found. Please validate either PYCHARM_JDK, JDK_HOME or JAVA_HOME environment variable points to valid JDK installation.

That means the JDK environment variables are not set properly.

If using bash:

FILE ~/.bashrc
export PYCHARM_JDK=`java-config -O`

If using fish:

FILE ~/.config/fish/conf.d/
set -x PYCHARM_JDK (java-config -O)
