This problem just cropped up in the last day or two and I'm not sure what I did to cause it. I know it was me. It usually is. Anyway, when working on my remote system, I can set a breakpoint in my code. When I press the bug button debug it, I get messages like this following:
pydev debugger: warning: trying to add breakpoint to file that does not exist: /joe/config.py (will have no effect)
pydev debugger: warning: trying to add breakpoint to file that does not exist: /joe/aborted/joe.py (will have no effect)
pydev debugger: warning: trying to add breakpoint to file that does not exist: /Users/bundito/Library/Preferences/PyCharm2017.2/scratches/scratch.py (will have no effect)
The debugger skips past the breakpoint and never pauses the program execution. My remote machine (where I'm coding) is a MacBook Pro. The destination server is a dusty old Dell Optiplex running Linux Mint 18.2/Ubuntu 16.04. Both have the latest versions of Pycharm Professional.
I've got PYCHARM_DEBUG=True set as environment variables on both machines. I can do everything else remotely, even X11 forwarding for my GUI programming. But I must have broken something while monkeying around.
Does anyone have any idea how I get my remote debugger back? It does come in handy sometimes.
