Installing Ruby-GNOME2

The Ruby-GNOME2 is a set of Ruby language bindings for the GNOME 2.0. To install it just download one of the packages. If you want just the basic interaction with GLib or GTK the ruby-gtk2-(version).tar.gz package is enough. If you are not quite sure about your needs, download the whole package ruby-gnome2-all-(version).tar.gz. Extract it wherever you want and use the commands, root privilegies are needed:
  • “ruby extconf.rb”
  • make
  • make install

If everything goes well, you will receive the following message:

SUCCEEDED:  glib gtk


That’s it.
