wxruby svn import (19/07/2012)
wxRuby is a cross-platform GUI library for creating desktop applications. It has a comprehensive widget set, and provides native look and feel on Windows, OS X and Linux. It's based on the mature and liberally-licensed wxWidgets framework.
I was unable to use wxruby with ruby 1.9 on a Ubuntu 12.04 intel machine, because of an incompatibility of the oficial wxruby-ruby19 binary gem with the libxw_gtku version of ubuntu.
in `require': /home/ron/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p125@wxgui/gems/wxruby-ruby19-2.0.1-x86-linux/lib/wxruby2.so: symbol _ZN16wxStyledTextCtrl7SendMsgEill, version WXU_2.8 not defined in file libwx_gtk2u_stc-2.8.so.0 with link time reference - /home/ron/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p125@wxgui/gems/wxruby-ruby19-2.0.1-x86-linux lib/wxruby2.so (LoadError)
This problem can also be tracked in launchpad
To compile your own version you can clone this repository and follow the installation instructions that worked for me.
Unfortunately the last release (2.0.1) is already 2,5 years old…
First, you can just download my binary version fo Ubuntu 12.04
if this does not work, you have to compile it yourself:
sudo apt-get install swig
RUBYOPT='-rpsych' WXRUBY_VERSION=2.0.2 rake gem
