I am quite a beginner in the Linux world, so excuse me my ignorance. I
tried to compile the wxRuby source files, just as described on the
official instruction for Ubuntu users:
I have extracted dirs for wxruby-2.0.1 and swig-1.3.38 in the /opt
directory. I am using ruby 1.9.2p0 installed via rvm.
Everything was going ok, untill rake step for wxRuby. I get the
[email protected]:/opt/wxruby-2.0.1/swig$ sudo rake
[sudo] password for jabaar:
NOTE: Gem::Specification#has_rdoc= is deprecated with no replacement. It
will be removed on or after 2011-10-01.
Gem::Specification#has_rdoc= called from ./rake/rakepackage.rb:44
Enabling DYNAMIC build
Enabling RELEASE build
Enabling UNICODE build
The following wxWidgets features are not available and will be skipped:
/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rake.rb:2383: command not found: swig -version
Could not get version info from SWIG; is a very old version installed?.
I installed swig (according to the instruction mentioned above) and I
get the following output in terminal for swig -version:
[email protected]:/opt/wxruby-2.0.1/swig$ swig -version
SWIG Version 1.3.38
Compiled with g++ [i686-pc-linux-gnu]
Please see http://www.swig.org for reporting bugs and further
So I assume it is installed allright. I am torturing this installation
problem for two days now… Can somebody tell me what I am doing wrong?
