You will need to install several dependencies in order to be able to use dr properly. Running the following command should get you all you'll need:
sudo apt-get install git tar gzip devscripts debhelper debootstrap \ qemu-user-static chroot ruby rubygems \ build-essential curl reprepro rngd-tools
These packages have a lot of dependencies, so the installation may take a while to complete. Note that because dr uses tools such as debootstrap, debhelper, and debuild, it's now limited for use on Debian-based distributions of Linux only (we tested it on Debian Wheezy and Ubuntu 13.10).
After you've got all the dependencies sorted, you can install dr with the following command:
sudo gem install dr
