Gems, helpers and rails

Hi i’m trying to get the paypal library working in my rails app. I know
this is the ruby forum but i think this might be half a ruby question. I
installed the paypal gem.

$ gem list

*** LOCAL GEMS ***

##rails ones + others##

money (1.7.1)
Class aiding in the handling of Money.

paypal (2.0.0)
Paypal IPN integration library for rails and other web applications

irb(main):001:0> require ‘rubygems’
=> true
irb(main):002:0> require ‘paypal’
=> false
irb(main):003:0> include Paypal
NameError: uninitialized constant Paypal
from (irb):3
irb(main):004:0> include paypal
NameError: undefined local variable or method `paypal’ for
from (irb):4

when i try and use the form helpers in rails
specifically the code below taken from the RDoc:

<%= paypal_form_tag %>
25: <%= paypal_setup “Item 500”, Money.us_dollar(50000),
[email protected]”, :notify_url => url_for(:only_path => false,
:action => ‘paypal_ipn’) %>

if get this error:
undefined local variable or method `paypal_form_tag’ for

Extracted source (around line #24):

24: <%= paypal_form_tag %>

I have added require ‘paypal’ to the end of my enviroment.rb .
I have this as my application_helper.rb

require ‘paypal’
module ApplicationHelper
include Paypal::Helpers

I also now get this in my log

ApplicationController: missing default helper path application_helper

Please give me something else to try.
I am stumped!

okay update

now i get this error

require ‘net/https’

is the line that it dies on.

ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i486-linux]
Rails 1.1.6

tis all sorted for now

installed libopenssl-ruby1.8 and we seem to be away,

also require ‘money’ in enviroment.tb
