Workbench + quarto cli for Jupyter and VS Code

We are currently using RStudio Workbench w/ launcher allowing our users to launch RStudio, Jupyter and VS Code sessions. The Rstudio sessions have the appropriate configuration so that the quarto cli is available via the terminal (installed in /usr/lib/rstudio-server/bin/quarto/bin/quarto) but this appears not the be the case with either Jupyter or VS Code.

Installing quarto outside of the Workbench install is not trivial as we are running on Fedora 36. Are there any suggestions beyond just adding /usr/lib/rstudio-server/bin/quarto/bin/ to $PATH globally?

Hi @rundel

Thanks for the feedback - the workbench team is aware and potentially will inject the automagic exposure of quarto similar to RStudio sessions in later workbench versions.

In the meantime, many folks have found success symlinking /usr/lib/rstudio-server/bin/quarto/bin/quarto into like /usr/local/bin/quarto such that it is on the path and picked up by everyone. Other patterns to add that dir to the path would also work!

Hope that helps!


I hadn't thought of the symlink solution - that should work for us for the time being.
