Installation is through Rubygems while Redcar is under development. Platform installers are on the roadmap for 1.0.
gem install redcar
firefox-dev. See Common Problems if you cannot find this package.)
sudo gem install redcar rvmsudo gem install redcar (if you are using Fedora Linux)
Xcode > Preferences > Downloads) installed.
sudo gem install redcar
git clone git://github.com/redcar/redcar.git cd redcar jruby -S bundle install
You need to update your Rubygems installation, there were some issues around gem incompatibility in earlier versions.
In order to 'see' the Gecko related packages in Synaptic or apt you need to have the "security" source for the latest LTS release (currently 10.04 lucid). This is done by adding
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu lucid-security main in your
/etc/apt/sources.list) either by hand or through Synaptic->Settings->Repositories->Other Software->Add...)
You don’t have the Rubygem binary directory in your path. (For instance, Ubuntu may not set this up automatically). You can run Redcar with a full path to the binary (On Ubuntu:
/var/lib/gems/1.9.1/bin/redcar) or you can add the gem binary directory to your path (On Ubuntu, the directory is
/var/lib/gems/1.9.1/bin). If it still doesn't work try
ruby redcar install.
There is a nice writeup here by Mat Alan Gilbert on creating a custom Redcar launcher.
If you are on Linux, install xulrunner, which is available on Ubuntu in the xulrunner-1.9.2-dev package. If you are not on Linux, contact the development team.
