Sudo: gem: command not found

I opened up my file .bash_login and have the following path
export PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:$PATH"

The when I try and install Ruby on Rails via this command line:
sudo gem install rails --include-dependencies

I receive this error:
sudo: gem: command not found

Any help please.
Thanks
Uri

Heres an Ubuntu guide, might be helpful:

What OS??

On ubuntu I had to install rubygems by hand

There is no stable deb package for it yet sadly

it sounds as though gem is not in your path, have you ruby installed
on your machine?
% which ruby
% which gem

Upon closing the terminal and re-opening the command finally worked.
Thanks to all for your assistance.

If you installed Ruby via RVM (you should of) you need to use the
rvmsudo command. Ergo:

sudo gem install rails --include-dependencies

Becomes:

rvmsudo gem install rails --include-dependencies

you can get error like: sudo: gem: command not found
you can type in the terminal “sudo apt-get install rails rails-doc
rails-ruby1.8” and next type “sudo gem install rails mysql
sqlite3-ruby mongrel” rails will be install

any help go to “http://venkatinlinux.blogspot.com” and search rails
installation

rvmsudo worked for me. Thanks.
