How to Install RubyMine on Manjaro (Arch-based Linux Distributions) ?
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
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.
