I got visualruby today.
Whenever I try to run it, though.
It stares back at me for an infinite amount of time.
Any help?

Hi Bob:

What operating system are you using?

Exactly what happened on each step of the install?

Go to visualruby.net > Download for instructions.

OS: Ubuntu Studio 12.10 - Quantal Queztal
Everything was good and fast, until I got to running the actual program.
I did everything on that page.
That's how I downloaded and installed visualruby.
Thanks!

Do you mean starting Visualruby with vr or do you mean running your
programm written in VisualRuby ??

Are you using rvm ?

What version of ruby are you running?

at the prompt enter:

ruby -v

You need version 1.9

In your home directory, you should see a folder:

home/visualruby/examples

Is this folder on your machine?

From running ruby -v:
ruby 1.9.3p194 (2012-04-20 revision 35410) [i686-linux]

Yes.

Hi Bob:

Try pressing ctrl-c when it hangs, and post the output here.

Also try this at the command prompt:

cd ~/visualruby/examples/drag_drop
vr

This will run vr in the above directory, skipping the step where vr
scans your home directory for vr projects.  If this hangs, press ctrl-c
and post output here.

You may need to uninstall everything and start over.  Read the output
from the install for cles to your problem.

Yours,
Eric
