jQuery draggable not working in RoR 3.1

I started a new RoR 3.1 project to test this. I’ve added the
following needed jQuery .js files to make draggable work correctly
into my app/assests/javascripts directory.

The application.js has the default code:
//= require jquery
//= require jquery_ujs
//= require_tree .

I then added the .js code to make it all work into the application.js
$(function() {
$( “#draggable” ).draggable();

So this is all set.

Then I use the following code in my home page:

Drag me around

Dragging doesn’t work! The code I used is based on the jQuery demo
file for draggable. It works fine as a HTML file but when I put into
my Ruby on Rails 3.1 project, it doesn’t work. What am I doing
wrong? I’ve been pulling my hair because of this. Thanks for your
