That may be true...

Do you have FOX 1.2 installed (as well as a version of FXScintilla
built against that build of FOX 1.2)? Also, note that the latest
version of FXRuby 1.2 is version 1.2.6; when I tried to install it
via RubyGems, it came up as option #17 (but I'm not sure how stable
that ordering is).
As a side note: While I'm sympathetic to the fact that FreeRIDE (and
perhaps other apps) are still based on FXRuby 1.2, the fact is that
that version's a couple of "generations" old now. I'm definitely not
making bug fixes or otherwise developing that series anymore. I'm not
sure what it would take to get the FreeRIDErs to upgrade to the
latest FXRuby; I'm guessing that they have just about as much free
time as I do. ;)
