Adding desktop entry in ubuntu GNOME 14.04


I've just installed PyCharm4 professional on ubuntu GNOME 14.04. I used "create terminal entry" and "create desktop entry" from Tools menu to create shortcuts. terminal entry works fine and starts PyCharm, but desktop entry does nothing when you click it from the application overview. I tried many things, from creating custom launcher with Alacarte and changing the command, to placing `.desktop` file into other application paths, non of them worked.

Have anyone faced the same issue? I asked a colleague to try make a desktop entry and he was unsuccessful either. It gets pretty annoying to start it every time with a nohup command or sth like it, when you can see the desktop entry right there. It would be great if someone could find a workaround for this.
