Sinatra and Shotgun Gems

Hi all,

I’m working of playing around with a Nettuts Sinatra tutorial:

and for whatever reason, I can’t get the shotgun gem to load. My
terminal (Debian Linux) returns the following:

[email protected] ~/Test-Run $ shotgun basics.rb
No command ‘shotgun’ found, did you mean:
Command ‘shogun’ from package ‘shogun-cmdline’ (universe)
shotgun: command not found
[email protected] ~/Test-Run $

I have tried editing my gem paths, but that shouldn’t be it since
sinatra works, right?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Ryan

This worked for me on Ubuntu after “sudo gem install shotgun”
$ shotgun hello.rb

How did you install sinatra? You might be using the native Debian
package rather than the gem:

$ apt-cache search sinatra
libsinatra-ruby - Ruby web-development dressed in a DSL (Ruby 1.8
package)
libsinatra-ruby-doc - Ruby web-development dressed in a DSL
(documentation)
libsinatra-ruby1.8 - Ruby web-development dressed in a DSL
libsinatra-ruby1.9.1 - Ruby web-development dressed in a DSL

in which case the gems dir may not in fact be on your search path.

I suggest you try the following:

export PATH=/var/lib/gems/1.8/bin:$PATH
shotgun …blah blah…

Brian,

That was the fix I was looking for! Thank you.

One more question: Will I need to enter this path command every time I
rebook Linux? I’ve read a little on having a .bashrc file, but haven’t
attempted to create anything… I might need a little help if the case
is that I will need one.

Thanks,
Ryan
