Initial caveat: I come from a M$ VS world so … yes I’m lazy.
Ok I definately think Ruby’s got a lot of potential so I’m trying to
play with it. I bassically need two things in order to make my life
complete. (pathetic I know… :p)
- Code completion(intellisense)
- Desktop GUI creation. (preferably with a GUI of it’s own.)
I just d/led NetBeans (6.01 then 6.1rc2 for TK that I can’t seem to
find). So I’ve got code completion. Very cool.
Now all I’ve got to do is find out how to create a Desktop GUI. There
doesn’t seem to be a simple way to do this. I installed FXRuby through
Ruby Gems. (got an error the first time so I installed Fox 1.6.32.) I
fired up NB again and opened my Ruby app. I’m following the tutorial
I then got another error(I need to require ‘rubygems’) now I get the
libFOX-1.6.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or
directory - /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/fxruby-1.6.14/ext/fox16/fox16.so
Looking at the documentation it looks like I have to declare some kind
of path variable so I run the good old terminal window and run:
I enter IRB and try out the example and it works fine. yay.
I try this in NB and I’m still not getting any love…
