I have a MacBook Pro, running Mavericks, but I'm not too acquainted with its inner workings. I'm just a humble CS student.

After installing Ruby 1.9.3 and Rails 4.0.0, I get this annoying message every time I open a new terminal window:

Unknown ruby interpreter version (do not know how to handle): textmate.
Could not load ruby textmate.

The message is in bright red, so it worries me. What can I do to fix it/get rid of it?


Edit: The commands I used to install the software are:

sudo xcode-select --install
sudo port -dv selfupdate
rvm install 1.9.3
rvm use 1.9.3 --default
gem install rails -v 4.0.0

Edit 2: As it turns out, the message stopped showing, but I don't know what I did to make it stop. In any case - thanks for reading!

  • How did you install 1.9.3 and Rails? What shell startup files did you modify (.bash_profile maybe)? – slhck Jan 19 '14 at 16:31
  • I get a similar message when I cd into the directory of one of my Rails projects. It started suddenly and I cannot explain it. – Wizard of Ogz Feb 3 '14 at 14:10
  • Does grep 'rvm use textmate' ~ return anything? You have rvm use textmate somewhere in the initialisation scripts. – Leonid Shevtsov Mar 1 '14 at 13:31
  • Hi Leonid - grep 'rvm use textmate' ~ returns: "grep: /Users/mchen: Is a directory" – mchen.ja Mar 1 '14 at 18:57

Maybe you can try this:

rvm alias delete textmate
rvm alias create textmate 1.9.3
  • Please explain what this does when answering – Fazer87 Jun 18 '14 at 8:20
  • sorry, it was the wrong version on my answer. my bad, i fixed it. i thought that it was obvious that it remove the rvm rubie alias of texmate and add a new one with the current ruby version he's using, thats why it could work for him – juhlila Jun 18 '14 at 22:04
