multiple user installation of rvm in Debian

You would like to install rvm as a multiple user installation in Debian.

You would need to do the following:

as root

  • bash < <(curl -s

for each individual user you want to use rvm

  • in the user’s .bashrc or .bashrc_profile add the following at the bottom:
    [[ -s "/usr/local/rvm/scripts/rvm" ]] && source "/usr/local/rvm/scripts/rvm" # This loads RVM into a shell session.
  • reload the .bashrc or .bashrc_profile by:
    source .bashrc|.bashrc_profile

and you should be able to do rvm -v.
