  2. Click the Add icon and select New remoteā€¦ in the drop-down:

    rm add remote ruby interpreter wsl

  3. In the invoked dialog, select WSL:

    rm remote sdk wsl

    Choose the desired Linux distribution.

    In Ruby or version manager path, specify the path to the Ruby interpreter or the version manager executable. Click OK.

  4. (Optional) If you specified a path to the version manager executable in the previous dialog, RubyMine suggests you select the Ruby interpreter used to run a remote application:

    rm remote sdk distribution windows

  5. Select the added SDK in the Ruby SDK and Gems page:

    rm remote sdk gems page wsl
  6. (Optional) If you want to use the added SDK to debug a remote process, specify mappings between files of a local and remote project. To do this, click the Edit Path Mappings icons vcs mapBase button. In the Edit Project Path Mappings dialog, specify the local and remote project root paths:
