    Wxruby gem installed but cannot be found by ruby program.

    Ok, Getting into ruby programming, wanted to try out this program and learn from its source code. It required several gems, which I installed with the following command, output included:

    [spoiler=original error]

    But, on attempt to run said program, I get the following error:
    ntzrmtthihu777@bt:~/RMXP/rxdataed/src$ ruby rxdataed.rb 
    /usr/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/1.8/rubygems/dependency.rb:247:in `to_specs': Could not find wxruby (<= 1.9.8) amongst [archive-tar-0.9.0, archive-zip-0.5.0, gettext-2.3.7, io-like-0.3.0, levenshtein-0.2.2, locale-2.0.8, rake-10.0.3, rubyscript2exe-0.5.3, wxruby-2.0.0-x86_64-linux] (Gem::LoadError)

        from /usr/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:1208:in `gem'
        from rxdataed.rb:34
    [/spoiler]I have obviously installed it, it just seems ruby does not know where it is, perhaps because it is looking in 1.8 but the gem is version 2.0

    Any help/feedback would be appreciated.

    [EDIT] Ok, learned about the rvm, installed into that instead, turns out I just derped and installed the wrong version of wxruby. I got the right version now, but I now have an additional error:
    ntzrmtthihu777@bt:~/RMXP/rxdataed/src$ ruby rxdataed.rb 
    ruby: symbol lookup error: /home/ntzrmtthihu777/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p374@rxdata/gems/wxruby-1.9.8-x86_64-linux/lib/ undefined symbol: Init_wxMediaCtrl
    Seems the creator of the script made an error; the script was asking for <= 1.9.8 which is just plain unusual. I could understand ==1.9.8 if only that version worked, but <= 1.9.8 can even return 0.0.1, which is even less likely to work

    The old ways are not the only ways. We study the mysteries of laser and circuit, crystal and scanner. Holographic daemons and invocations of equations. These are the tools we employ, and we know many things
