The RubyMine integrated development environment (IDE) is used to develop applications in the Ruby programming language. It is developed by Jetbrains and is available as a free community edition for students and a commercial edition. The RubyMine coding environment supports highlighting, linting, code navigation, code completion, code refactoring, debugging, profiling, unit testing, and integration testing.

Features of RubyMine:

  • Free community version for students
  • Ruby Gems management, Rake support, and built-in consoles
  • Cross-platform

Since RubyMine is proprietary software by Jetbrains and is not available in the official Arch repositories, we cannot install it using Pacman. So, this article will discuss the most common way to install RubyMine on Arch/Manjaro/Chakra.

Installation of RubyMine

Step 1: Update and upgrade your system by running the below command:

$ sudo pacman -Syu




Step 2: Install the snap tool from the official Arch repositories.

$ sudo pacman -S snapd



Step 3: Enable snap by using the systemctl command:

$ sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket


Step 4: Create a symbolic link between /var/lib/snapd/snap and /snap to enable classic support.

$ sudo ln -s /var/lib/snapd/snap /snap


Step 5: Verify the installation by running below command:

$ snap version


Step 6: Now, install the latest version of the Ruby programming language.

$ sudo pacman -S ruby



Step 7: Confirm if Ruby was installed correctly.

$ ruby -v


Step 8: Finally, install RubyMine Idea using the snap with the –classic flag.

$ sudo snap install rubymine --classic


Getting Started with RubyMine

Step 1: Launch RubyMine by searching for it in the application menu.



Step 2: Accept the service agreement.



Step 3: Log into your JetBrains account to activate the product.





Step 4: Create a new ruby project by selecting the preferable framework you want to work in.



Step 5: Once you have entered the project name, wait for RubyMine to create the project structure on your machine. Now, start working on the project just like any other IDE.
