Installing the Rust processor

Rust can be installed with user permission, so install the version you need in your home directory.

When you access the official website - The Rust toolchain installer, the following screen will appear.


To install, copy a single line, paste it on your terminal and run it.

  • The installation directory is $HOME/.rustup, $HOME/.cargo.

  • Execute the source $HOME/.cargo/env for pass paths etc. to the Rust tools and using it.

A line is automatically added to .bashrc about running this script.

Welcome to Rust!
This will download and install the official compiler for the Rust
programming language, and its package manager, Cargo.

Rustup metadata and toolchains will be installed into the Rustup
home directory, located at:


This can be modified with the RUSTUP_HOME environment variable.

The Cargo home directory located at:


This can be modified with the CARGO_HOME environment variable.

The cargo(B, rustc(B, rustup(B and other commands will be added to
Cargo's bin directory, located at:


This path will then be added to your PATH(B environment variable by
modifying the profile files located at:


You can uninstall at any time with rustup self uninstall(B and
these changes will be reverted.

stable-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu installed(B - rustc 1.52.0 (88f19c6da 2021-05-03)

Rust is installed now. Great!
To get started you may need to restart your current shell.
This would reload your PATH(B environment variable to include
Cargo's bin directory ($HOME/.cargo/bin).

To configure your current shell, run:
source $HOME/.cargo/env

The following tools are installed.

  • cargo is Rust’s compilation manager, package manager, and general-purpose tool. You can use Cargo to start a new project, build and run your program, and manage any external libraries your code depends on.

  • rustc is the Rust compiler. Usually we let Cargo invoke the compiler for us, but sometimes it’s useful to run it directly.

  • rustdoc is the Rust documentation tool. If you write documentation in comments of the appropriate form in your program’s source code, rustdoc can build nicely formatted HTML from them. Like rustc, we usually let Cargo run rustdoc for us.
