Mike unsure how much help this is so take from it what you will.
I'm running Kubuntu 10.04.
like you I had "issues" getting things to play and fit together.
from my repository manager i found a library for fox/fxruby.
then I had to be in the physical directory and run ruby fxapp.rb
Don't know if this will help the filename islibfox-16.32.2.deb so it a deb
package, installs in with the system .SO files meaning I don't have to have
fxruby gem installed (but in fact I have more because it works now and I an't
going to break it).
by finding and installing that file it MAY help you get fxruby running.
