    4. Ok, i see what the problem is here. You have either installed the incorrect version of Pycharm or your chromebook is just crap. If you have installed the community version of Pycharm for linux, then this should work, if you have downloaded the professional then you need to change these following commands:

      - tar -xf pycharm-community-2020.3.3.tar.gz -> tar -xf pycharm-professional-2020.3.3.tar.gz

      IF THIS DOES NOT FIX THE ISSUE THEN IM NOT SURE WHAT WILL
