I just downloaded Rubymine and ran "./rubymine.sh" while it's containing folder was in my download directory and it created the link "/usr/local/bin/mine". The problem is that I don't want Rubymine to be in my download directory. I just removed "/usr/local/bin/mine", but when I rerun the program it doesn't create a new link. I'm not sure what to do.
