Hi, I'm a new user to Ubuntu and I'm having problems, scratch my other questions as I am now thinking of just basically reprogramming the GUI (gooie ewwie! ^^) After becomming insane from the constant cannot recognise command or "not found" in the terminal I've decided to turn towards others in this forum I apologize for any rudeness (whatever!) Anyhow...
I'm trying to install ruby (the irony!) here's what i've just done with the terminal:
Hopefully someone will help me with this please -.-Code:sudo aptitude install build-essential Then I typed clear ^^ cd Desktop/ ls Then it gave me this: ruby ruby_1.8.5_2006-08-25.zip ruby-1.9.0-0 wine-dlls-0.9.14-mingw.zip (I tried installing 1.9.0-0 with no succession so I then tried 1.8.5) sudo tar -xvzf ruby-1.8.5-p12.tar.gz --directory=/usr/local/src and here's what I got :( tar: ruby-1.8.5-p12.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now tar: Child returned status 2 tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
in the meantime how do I disable the stupid password security it is getting on my nerves (i've been entering it over and over again for every installation I attempt!)
