Install RubyMine under Ubuntu

This card explains how to install RubyMine for the first time. If you want to upgrade an existing RubyMine installation to a newer version, see How to upgrade RubyMine.

  • Install the Sun Java JRE

  • Download RubyMine

  • Unpack the downloaded archive:

    tar -xzf RubyMine-X.Y.Z.tar.gz
  • Make a directory for RubyMines:

    mkdir -p ~/bin/rubymines/ mkdir -p ~/bin/rubymine/
  • Move the unpacked RubyMine folder to the desired destination:

    mv ~/Downloads/RubyMine-X.Y.Z ~/bin/rubymines
  • Make a symlink:

    ln -nfs ~/bin/rubymines/RubyMine-X.Y.Z ~/bin/rubymine
  • Restart X

  • Add a launcher icon to your gnome panel. The command to call is /home/$USER/bin/rubymine/bin/ For the icon there is a nice SVG of the RubyMine logo in that bin folder as well.

  • If you're working at makandra, ask the ops team for a RubyMine license.
