Topic: RubyMine for Linux

I'm having trouble installing RubyMine on my Ubuntu 8.10 workstation.

I unpacked the file:

jason@jason-ubuntu-vm:~/Desktop$ sudo tar -xzvf rubymine435.tar.gz

change to the new directory, then to the bin directory

start the installer:

sudo ./

then i get this error:

ERROR: cannot start RUBYMINE
No JDK found to run RubyMine. Please validate either IDEA_JDK or JDK_HOME points to valid JDK installation.
exec: 60: /bin/java: not found

i installed the java jdk (sudo apt-get install sun-java-jdk6), and it installed with no errors. my guess is that i need to edit a config file, but cannot figure out which one. Or maybe it's something else.

Hello Jason,

Please try the following command:
export JDK_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun
and then run
