Install Guide for Debian

Debian GNU/Linux


Official packages are available for stable, testing and unstable Debian. Each binding is available as a separate package. For example,the GTK+ binding is available as libgtk2-ruby. You can install all the packages by installing the ruby-gnome2 package, which depends on all the others. Running "apt-get install ruby-gnome2" as root should do the trick.

Make sure you read the README.Debian file, which is available in /usr/share/doc/<package>.

Bugs in Packages

Bugs in the packages should be filed as normal in the Debian Bug Tracking System.
