Pycharm 2017.3 launcher icon

Pycharm 2017.3 doesn’t create a launcher icon like 2017.2.  This must be created manually.  Here is a functional one.

The list of available categories so that it appears correctly in application menus is over at the page for the Gnome Desktop Menu Specification.  Development is used to make it appear in the “Programming” applications menu.
