The pg gem is only a way to communicate with the Postgres server; make
sure you have postgresql and postgresql-dev installed on your system
(with Linux, there should be apt or rpm packages available; not sure
about Windows).

On Ubuntu, there is one libpq-dev ( which you have installed ) and the
other is postgresql-server-dev-. I think you need both.

I am getting crazy about this problem… Basically pg compiles for my
system ruby (installed via apt-get), also compiles for my RVM ruby 1.8
BUT when I try to compile it for RVM ruby 1.9 it will fail!!! Why??

Error is always:
Can’t find the PostgreSQL client library (libpq)

1.9.3, I fixed it…

I had to rename a “lib” folder inside the .rvm directory, compile the
gem separately and then re-rename the folder…

Instead of compiling it by hand, you specify the missing headers in the
gem
command:

rvmsudo gem install pg – --with-pg-lib=/usr/pgsql/lib/
–with-pg-config=/usr/pgsql/bin/pg_config

If you need to bundle install pg (or other gem that uses it), you could
use
a bundle config file:

bundle config build.pg --with-pg-lib=/usr/pgsql/lib/
–with-pg-config=/usr/pgsql/bin/pg_config

My error wasn’t related to any missing headers, pg was being linked with
the wrong libraries.

Which 1.9?

Is it the same version of the pg gem that in the case that compiles
and the one that doesn’t?

Just for your information, the solution posted on stacked overflow fixed
my problem…

This was my exact same problem:
