Integrating RVM with gnome-terminal

If you are going to use RVM installations with gnome-terminal, you'll probably need to change its default options. Note that Ubuntu's and Linux Mint Terminal application is actually gnome-terminal.

Multi-User RVM creates a script in /etc/profile.d, which is being sourced on startup. Also, most people put the RVM sourcing line required to load RVM in their ~/.bash_profile for Single-User installs. By default, gnome-terminal runs Bash as usual, as a non-login shell, therefore skipping /etc/profile* and executing only the user's ~/.bashrc. This means that RVM doesn't load and you get the infamous 'RVM is not a function' message.

For RVM to work properly, you have to check the 'Run command as login shell' checkbox on the Title and Command tab of gnome-terminal's Edit ▸ Profile Preferences menu dialog, in case the menu is missing right click the terminal app and navigate Profiles ▸ Profile Preferences.

Here is a screen shoot of the dialog with highlighted checkbox:
