Need help to install "linguistics" gem


#1

Hi,

I have a problem with installing gem: linguistics.

sudo gem install linguistics

Gave me “not found” error. So I googled and found the source here.
http://www.deveiate.org/projects/Linguistics/
The gem seems to be located at
http://www.deveiate.org/code/Linguistics-1.0.5.gem

I don’t know how I can install this gem.

Can any body help on this?

Simply download it to your local drive… then do something like
this:bash-3.2$
cd /cygdrive/d/Downloads/
bash-3.2$ gem install Linguistics-1.0.5.gem
Successfully installed Linguistics-1.0.5
1 gem installed

Specifically, for this instance, it was done on Windows using my Cygwin
environment.

I’m assuming you have RubyGems installed already. Just download
the .gem file and then use a terminal/console:

Linux:

$ sudo gem install Linguistics-1.0.5.gem

Windows:

gem install Linguistics-1.0.5.gem

Solved.

I opened up the directory “Linguistics-1.0.5.gem” and found two files
“metadata.tar.gz” and “data.gz”.
I extracted both archives, and "cd"ed to “data” directory.

There I ran a command.

pwd #=> /Users/myusernamei/Desktop/Linguistics-1.0.5.gem/data
sudo gem install Linguistics

Now the installation was successful.

Thanks for your help, guys.

I’m still getting the same error.

I downloaded the “Linguistics-1.0.5.gem.tar” file on my desktop.
Then, I double-clicked and expanded and now there is a new directory
“Linguistics-1.0.5.gem” on my desktop.
Next, I launch Terminal and cd to desktop. cd ~/Desktop.

Then, I run

sudo gem install Linguistics-1.0.5.gem

The error I get is:

ERROR: could not find gem Linguistics-1.0.5.gem locally or in a
repository

I wonder where gem is searching locally. I may need to place the .gem
directory somewhere specified.

I ran gem environment and here’s output.
