I tried it, but color-tools is allready installed. I uninstalled
color-tools and then installed color. But problem still exists.
Installed color-tools again but no success. Tried it on my FreeBSD 1.8.5
box, and my Apple 1.8.5.

If i open script/console and enter:
module Color
  Color::Test = 1
end

I get the same error. Is Color a reserved word, or is it set elsewhere
as something else?

Sorry for the Spam, but i found the problem. When i type >> Color in the
console it says.
=> Magick::Color

So Color is allready been set to a Class in ImageMagick. Now im looking
for the answer how to handle with this.

Kind Regards,

Martijn

Nice piece of software, but it's expensive. I found the problem for my
error. It was a bug in the simple_captcha plugin. It included the
RMagick gem the wrong way. So there is nog problem with the color-tools
gem.
