FXRuby 1.6.x is only compatible with FOX 1.6. There is no release of  
FXRuby that is compatible with the (unstable) FOX 1.7 series.

You don't need SWIG to build FXRuby. It's something I use in the  
development of FXRuby, but you don't need it.

Not sure what this sentence fragment means...

Did you try installing the gem that's actually released? Or the source  
tarball that's actually released? Official releases are here:

I have no idea what you're asking here.

You know, I'm just going to stop here because your email is just all  
over the place. You say you're running Ubuntu, right? Why not just  
install the packages for fox, i.e.

	sudo apt-get install libfox-1.6-dev

And then install FXRuby from the gem:

	sudo gem install fxruby

Hope this helps,


P.S. If you run into trouble with this approach, please post back to  
the list, but try to be more specific about what's going on.
