#StackBounty: #ubuntu #pycharm #ubuntu-18.04 PyCharm won't attach to process on Ubuntu 18.04

Bounty: 100

I’m having this issue where PyCharm 2018.1.3 (and previous versions) doesn’t allow me to Attach to Local Process even though I’ve changed the ptrace_scope setting outlined in the documentation here:


It just spins while waiting to attach, and it eventually just gives up and kills the debugger process.

I’ve restarted and it still just doesn’t work. It did work prior to upgrading (16.04 and 17.10), but every 18.04 VM that I’ve built has this issue.

Does anyone know if there is a new setting, or configuration file to edit on this new version of Ubuntu?

Get this bounty!!!
