    Hi im back- too many threads have crammed mine down

    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:

    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
    Hopefully someone will help me with this please -.-

    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!)

    Is there a reason why you want to compile Ruby from source instead of installing it from the repos? See here for more information about installing software in Ubuntu:

    Ruby is in synaptic.

    you can sudo synaptic in the terminal or you can find it via the menu System - Administration - Synaptic

    then just do a search for the version of ruby you're looking to install.

    I don't know if it's possible to remove sudo in Ubuntu.

    and if one hand grenade should accidentally fall,
    there would be no hand grenades no stupid wall

    Probably just hasn't created a launcher, open a terminal and type rub then hit tab a couple of times to see what programs start with rub, then view their man pages to work out what you want.

    Alternatively reopen synaptic and locate the package you installed. select it and view the properties, in their is a list of the files it installed.
