Sorry there are no other tuts that I know of about foxGUIb. I like hacking code and don't like writing tutorials ;) .... I suggest you read the FXRuby guide and/or Lyles book.
FoxGUIb is a tool I wrote to help me and my co-workers with GUI creation. I made it open source since I felt others will find it useful AS IT IS with all its limitations and problems but I have other goals now and would like to move on.

If you have any questions about fxruby or guib, you are welcome to ask here on the list.
