Steps to reproduce:
1. Install PyCharm as it is
2. Run it: it works
3. Install java-openjfx
4. Now PyCharm doesn't start:
"No JDK found. Please validate either PYCHARM_JDK, JDK_HOME or JAVA_HOME environment variable points to valid JDK installation."

Obviously, if neither OpenJFX nor JDK are not PyCharm's deps, their installation on deinstallation should not break PyCharm.

Additional info:
* pycharm-community-edition 2018.2.4-1
* java-openjfx-8.u172-2
* java-environment-common-3-1
* jdk8-openjdk-8.u192-1

archlinux-java status
Available Java environments:
java-8-openjdk/jre (default)

I wonder if it's from the version mismatch

Is this still an issue?
