Hi Everyone,

Just decided to play around with Fxruby and followed the installation steps found @ 


Everything went alright but "require 'fox16'" fails in my script.
I have already tried running a "require 'rubygems'" before calling for "require 'fox16'". It still fails with the following error 

irb(main):001:0> require 'rubygems'
=> true
irb(main):002:0> require 'fox16'
LoadError: no such file to load -- fox16.so

Any help or ideas are appreciated. Please help.

Thanks and Regards,

I know this isn't going to help you, but I had the exact same problem under Windows and ... dammit ... I don't remember how I fixed it.

I vaguely remember having to download and install the latest version of FXRuby ... but I am not sure.  I am sorry.

I am running under Windows and this is what I have that works ....

#!/usr/bin/env ruby
@@rdebug = false
# puts $0
@@rdebug = true if $0.to_s.end_with? "rdebug"

if @@rdebug
  require 'rubygems'
  require 'ruby-debug'

require 'pp'      # For pretty printing

require 'ftools'  # For debugging

require 'fox16'
require "yaml"

include Fox
