I have my ruby-2.3.1 installed in /opt/rubies/ruby-2.3.1/bin/ruby, but by some problems with dependencies KDE downloads ruby-2.1 to /usr/bin/ruby and now my system uses that version.

I've install RVM in the hope I could use that to change the path from /usr/bin/ruby to /opt/rubies/ruby-2.3.1/bin/ruby so I'm using that version again.

But I can't see if that's possible. Anyone got some tips?

The safest thing to do is to remove the manually installed ruby in /opt/rubies/ruby-2.3.1/bin/ruby and install ruby 2.3.1 with

rvm install 2.3.1

but you can also add the existing ruby 2.3.1 with

rvm mount /opt/rubies/ruby-2.3.1/bin/ruby
