[ANN] Ruby-GNOME2 Win32 GUI Installer


#1

Hi,

I released the new Ruby-GNOME2 Win32 GUI Installer.

Download

ruby-gnome2-0.16.0-1-i386-mswin32.exe
(http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=53614)

Features

  • Includes GTK2(gladewin32) and some other libraries.
    You don’t need to install gladewin32 by yourself.
    This must reduce almost of all installation problems
    and provide a easy/simple installation process.

  • Avoid DLL conflict
    This installer doesn’t set PATH environment forcely(as a option).
    And each Ruby-GNOME2 libraries find GTK2 libraries which
    this installer has. So this doesn’t effect other GTK2 based
    applications which include GTK2 itself and other GTK2 libararies
    doesn’t effect Ruby-GNOME2.

  • Included Ruby-GNOME2 libraries
    (Same as ruby-gtk2-0.16.0-1-i386-msvcrt-1.8.zip)

    • Ruby/GLib2
    • Ruby/ATK
    • Ruby/Pango
    • Ruby/GdkPixbuf2
    • Ruby/GTK2
    • Ruby/Libglade2
    • Ruby/GtkGLExt
    • Ruby/Libart2
      (Added)
    • Ruby/GnomeCanvas2
    • Ruby/GnomePrint2
    • Ruby/GnomePrintUI2
    • Ruby/GtkSourceView
    • Ruby/RSVG2

    (Others)

    • rcairo-1.2.6
    • Glade2, GtkThemeSelector and other development tools
      included gladewin32.

This will be replaced current win32 binary package
(ruby-gtk2-x.x.x-1-i386-msvcrt-1.8.zip).

This is the alpha release. Let’s try and report bugs.

Enjoy!

Sounds great!

Can it be auto-installed, that is, can I pass a switch to it and have
it install in the background, like /S /D=C:\ruby for ruby185-21.exe?

Yes. But the installer finds the ruby root path, so /D option is
ignored.

I can’t believe we now have access to Gtk Source View on Windows from
Ruby!

This is all so great and impressive, Masao! Very, very nice job!

This is 1.0 material! :wink:

Thanks a lot for all your creativity and hard work.

Cheers,
Joao

Getting error during testing the install of Ruby-GNOME2.

require ‘rubygems/source_index’

module Kernel
alias gem_original_require require # :nodoc:

We replace Ruby’s require with our own, which is capable of

loading gems on demand.

When you call require ‘x’, this is what happens:

* If the file can be loaded from the existing Ruby loadpath, it

is.

* Otherwise, installed gems are searched for a file that matches.

If it’s found in gem ‘y’, that gem is activated (added to the

loadpath).

The normal require functionality of returning false if

that file has already been loaded is preserved.

def require(path) # :nodoc:
gem_original_require path
rescue LoadError => load_error
begin
if spec = Gem.searcher.find(path)
Gem.activate(spec.name, false, “= #{spec.version}”)
gem_original_require path
else
raise load_error

end
end

Need help. Thanks

For me (and I use Linux most of the time) the windows one-click

Hard to say …
I am using these:
ruby186-26_rc2.exe
ruby-gnome2-0.16.0-1-i386-mswin32.exe

I install both into c:\ruby though, first ruby, then ruby-gnome (the
ruby-gnome install seems to have some special chars after c:\ruby[][]
which i delete before i hit enter, maybe because of a japanese
charset? Anyway, it causes no problem).

Installed both in I:\ruby and I:\InstantRails17 as \ruby dirs in both
have same contents.

I know 0 about InstantRails.

However, “ruby -v” should work anywhere, you dont need to be in system32
dir (but you probably know this already, so please disregard if you do).

About the gem, I dont know why you have a problem with a gem … is any
gem used at all? Its just 2 exe files. I dont know why rubygems (seems
to) interfere.

Installed ruy-genome2,with the latest above one click Ruby version also.
Getting same error.

Maybe InstantRails causes a problem now? :slight_smile:

All I can say is that for me ruby-gnome works. This may not sound very
reassuring to you, other than that it actually should work and does on
my machines :confused:
I’d recommend to remove everything you have installed from .exe files,
and then first installing ruby186-26_rc2.exe and then
ruby-gnome2-0.16.0-1-i386-mswin32.exe. Then, fire up IRB and do a

require ‘gtk2’

This is how it works for me on windows (on linux its a bit harder
because your packages need to work, but since i compiled on my own this
is usually the case, and if i have a problem someone else here on the
mailing list was able to help)

What am I doing wrong?

In google, some one has mentioned that sometimes ruby-genome install
does not update folders properly (unix/linux) and have to copy items to
I:\ruby\lib\ruby\site_ruby\1.8. Anynody has tried this approach?

Thanks

Sounds really weird… i guess you dont happen to have some extra
machine with a fresh windows install, and can try c:\ as install target
instead?

Something is wrong on your machine but i still dont see what (not that I
have a lot of experience with it anyway. I am just glad it works for me
on win)

I think there are few more things to do before gtk2 install.
Can somebody confirm, before I venture into this quicksand!

If I have to install them, will they go in separate folders?
Are they to be included in PATH? Do thay have to be in C: drive?

Shaun06, here’s how you go about fixing your GIMP:

Run a search on your computer for the files xmlparse.dll and xmltok.dll.
You should see two copies of each file, one in C:\Windows\system32 and
one in your GTK2/GIMP folders where you have GIMP installed.
The files in your GTK2/GIMP folders are the newer versions of those
dll’s
(you may notice that they’re slightly larger in size), but for some
reason
they sometimes don’t install properly. Anyway, copy both files for your
GTK folder
over to your system32 folder, and that’s it. GIMP should work perfectly
for you now. =^^=

did this and got reply true! WoW
irb(main):002:0> require ‘gtk2’
=> true
irb(main):003:0>

thanks

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

note:

  1. left the PATH blank.
  2. installed all 1-7 above
  3. copied 1-5 under I:\ruby, i:\ruby\lib, i:\ruby\lib\gtk,
    I:\ruby\lib\ruby\site_ruby\1.8 as i did not want to fail and drop this
    work!
    Now I have to find the right place and delete others.

Shaun06, here’s how you go about fixing your GIMP:

Run a search on your computer for the files xmlparse.dll and xmltok.dll.
You should see two copies of each file, one in C:\Windows\system32 and
one in your GTK2/GIMP folders where you have GIMP installed.
The files in your GTK2/GIMP folders are the newer versions of those
dll’s
(you may notice that they’re slightly larger in size), but for some
reason
they sometimes don’t install properly. Anyway, copy both files for your
GTK folder
over to your system32 folder, and that’s it. GIMP should work perfectly
for you now. =^^=

did this and got reply true! WoW
irb(main):002:0> require ‘gtk2’
=> true
