Try using “ruby1.9” or “ruby1.9.1” instead of “ruby”.

On Debian 6 the default ruby is 1.8.7, so ruby1.8 is the only package
that will give you “ruby” without a prefix.

This was changed for Debian 7, and both 1.8 and 1.9.* can provide “ruby”
by using the alternatives system. This is being documented in
http://wiki.debian.org/Ruby (but note that documentation is work in
progress).

You can workaround that on Debian 6 by running the following command as
root:

for program in /usr/bin/*1.9.1; do ln -s $program “$(echo $program | sed
‘s/bin/local/bin/; s/1.9.1//’)” ; done

This will create symbolic links for all *1.9.1 programs into
/usr/local/bin,
without the 1.9.1 prefix. This way you will have “ruby”, “gem”, etc.
