I've created my first small Rust program tonight. After trying PyCharm with a Rust plugin, I decided to try VS Code to see if that was any better. I've installed rust-analyzer, and opened my project folder, but it appears to have run into a problem.
[ERROR rust_analyzer::main_loop] FetchWorkspaceError: rust-analyzer failed to load workspace: cd "/home/biff/rx_test" && "cargo" "--version" failed: No such file or directory (os error 2)
And when I go to the TERMINAL tab, sure enough cargo is not there. But outside the terminal it works fine.
Inside the terminal I can see only a portion of the commands that my user can normally see in /usr/bin.
This is from the VS code terminal:
sh-5.1$ ls -l /usr/bin | wc 1064 9747 70885
This is from a normal terminal under Linux Mint:
$ ls -l /usr/bin | wc 2244 21117 142492
When I look at the files inside that terminal they appear to have been virtualised somehow:
-rwxr-xr-x 5 nfsnobody nfsnobody 1842 Dec 23 18:06 zmore -rwxr-xr-x 5 nfsnobody nfsnobody 4577 Dec 23 18:06 znew -rwxr-xr-x 4 nfsnobody nfsnobody 125976 Dec 23 18:06 zramctl -rwxr-xr-x 4 nfsnobody nfsnobody 914456 Dec 23 18:06 zstd lrwxrwxrwx 1 nfsnobody nfsnobody 4 Jan 29 22:30 zstdcat -> zstd -rwxr-xr-x 5 nfsnobody nfsnobody 3869 Dec 23 18:06 zstdgrep -rwxr-xr-x 5 nfsnobody nfsnobody 30 Dec 23 18:06 zstdless lrwxrwxrwx 1 nfsnobody nfsnobody 4 Jan 29 22:30 zstdmt -> zstd
(outside that terminal they are owned by root).
So my question is how do I 'inject' cargo into that environment?
I'm running Linux Mint BTW.
thanks for any assistance.
