Native file watcher executable not found

Answered

Hi All,

I'm running pycharm on linux mint Sylvia. However I'm getting the below error message when ever a file is being changed outside of pycharm. I'm not able to view the changes in the pycharm. Could you please help me fix this error.

 External file changes sync may be slow: Native file watcher executable not found

Thanks,

Arun

Do you have bin/fsnotifier64 in your PyCharm install dir? Does it have executable permissions?

Hello! Do you have `bin/fsnotifier64` in your PyCharm install dir? Does it have executable permissions? Please provide your idea.log (https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/207241085-Locating-IDE-log-files) Best regards, Lena

Where is the pycharm install dir is located inside the linux mint file system? However I found the idea.log file. Here is it's content: https://paste.ubuntu.com/26545014/

Well... You must know yourself where you have it installed. From the log it seems that it's /app/pycharm

Not sure if this is the right location to look into but I just found these in /proc/5515/root/app/pycharm/bin

fsnotifier is definitely missing; I'd suggest removing your installation and re-installing from scratch. Make sure to extract the downloaded archive into a new empty dir, not over existing installation!
