Cannot add remote (docker-compose) Ruby interpreter

I have a multi-application development environment based on passenger-docker.

I'm currently using RubyMine 2018.1.1 and I cannot add remote (docker-compose) Ruby interpreter.
The problem is the ruby interpreter path!

Can't create Ruby SDK
Can't find ruby by provided interpreter path

I tried with the following values, but it doesn't work:

  • /usr/local/rvm/rubies/default/bin/ruby
  • /usr/local/rvm/rubies/ruby-2.5.1/bin/ruby
  • /usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-2.5.1
  • /usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-2.5.1@global

It worked with RubyMine 2017.3 serie and the bold value.

Any idea?



Can you please explain me how RubyMine behaves when trying to download remote SDK. What are the requirements? Which variables must be set? If I know how it works, then I can try to find a workaround. 

I recently renewed my subscription (own founds) even if there are a few issues with my setup.

Please help me.

Many thanks,


Hello Mauro,

sorry for the delay. Could you please check how it goes in the last 2018.1.2 RC and after readding Docker configuration (Settings Build, Execution, Deployment | Docker). In case the problem persists would it be possible to provide a sample app for reproduce (you can send me it to


Hi Olga,
removing all volumes and rebuilding everything seems to have fixed the problem.

I created a git repo with a development environment based on passenger-docker and other two git repo with sample applications. 

I'll send you an email so that you can help me with
