Linux Mint Petra x64 and PyCharm CE v3.1.2 build 133.1229.
I have installed Python 2.7, 3.3 and 3.4 to /opt/Pythonx.x with the intention to use these installations for development. I chose to do it this way so I don't have to mess around with the system. Bitter experience...
I can add these installations fine as interpreters, but I am unable to install setuptools from within PyCharm.
Here's the log file:
Install package failed.
The following command was executed:
packaging_tool.py untar /home/tim/Python/pycharm-community-3.1.2/helpers/setuptools-1.1.5
The error output of the command:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/tim/Python/pycharm-community-3.1.2/helpers/packaging_tool.py", line 136, in main
retcode = untarDirectory(name)
File "/home/tim/Python/pycharm-community-3.1.2/helpers/packaging_tool.py", line 86, in untarDirectory
tar = tarfile.open(filename)
File "/opt/python3.4/lib/python3.4/tarfile.py", line 1554, in open
raise ReadError("file could not be opened successfully")
tarfile.ReadError: file could not be opened successfully
This happens for all my the installations in /opt/Pythonx.x. I have confirmed that the tar file is actually present.
Linux is new to me, and I have to say this was significantly easier to do in Windows. But I did lose my hard disk and don't have the installation key anymore, so here I am...
If anyone could help out I'd be eternally grateful!
