Facets units not working


I tried to give Units a try to find out the date difference between two
and ran into this:

irb(main):001:0> require ‘facet/units’
Errno::ENOENT: No such file or directory

  • /usr/share/calibre/units/standard.yaml
    from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/yaml.rb:129:in initialize' from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/yaml.rb:129:inload_file’

from (irb):1

Is there something I’m missing? Or is this a genuine facets / packaging

I’m using (well, trying to use) the 1.0.3 gem version of Facets.

Thanks for reporting this. I will look at tonight and get back to you.



Well, I have to recommend that Facets be installed via the tar.bz2
using setup.rb, instead of using Gems.

Unfortunately I had forgotten about this, but AFAIK, Gems has no
support for installing configuration and shared data files. So I’m not
sure how I’m going to resolve this conflict between Gems and setup.rb
