Up Topic Gosu / Gosu Exchange / Ruby: Gosu 0.8.5 on Ubuntu 12.04

Hi there

I had some troubles to install gosu gem on ubuntu 12.04, so I give you a little cookbook for future use

So, gosu need some C++ libraries who are not in default packages, you need:

+ libImageFree
+ libSndFile
+ libSDL2 / libSDL2-Ttf / libSDL2-Image / libSDL2-Mixer


sudo apt-get install libfreeimage3 libfreeimage-dev

Download link & instructions here:

(download, untar, go to directory, ./configure, make, sudo make install)

And finally:

gem install gosu

> Successfully installed gosu-0.8.5 ಥ‿ಥ

Hey. Thanks for the cookbook!

If you have a minute, you could apply some Markdown formatting and add it here:

That's the canonical place for Linux build instructions, and I think anyone can edit the page (might require a github account?) :)

Done :)

Thanks! And I've just noticed that it's pretty similar to my experience on the Raspberry Pi. Man, I'm looking forward to a time when every Linux distro comes with a stable SDL 2 package. :)
