I just installed visual ruby, with ruby 1.9.3p125, but vr said: cannot load such file -- openssl I had to copy /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/i686-linux/openssl.so into my $LOAD_PATH. vr now works, but is this the correct library?

Hi Wybo: I beleive that openssl is a part of ruby 1.9. Before, when I was using ruby 1.8.7 that installed with ubuntu, I had to install libopenssl-ruby like this: $ sudo apt-get install libopenssl-ruby But that hasn't been necessary with version 1.9 because its already included. I think your problem occurred with your install of ruby. If 1.9 is installed, this command should work in irb: irb>require 'net/https' That will test if it is installed correctly. It should return true. Perhaps others know more than I do. Thank you very much for your feedback. Please let me know if you have any more trouble. Yours, Eric

Hi Eric, Yes, I finally found out that it was libssl-dev that was missing. Thanks!
