I previously gave instructions for installing the Ruby on Rails environment on Linux Mint 11. Here are the instructions for Linux Mint 12 which was released a few days ago.
# Install Linux Mint 12 in VirtualBox. # Specify Maximum Video Memory. Disable 3D Acceleration. # Specify 1 GB of RAM. # Do not install Guest Extensions # open terminal sudo apt-get install curl git-core build-essential bison openssl zlib1g zlib1g-dev libssl-dev libxml2-dev autoconf nodejs sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient15-dev # Install MySQL from Software Manager. (mysql-server, mysql-admin, mysql-query-browser) # Server Hostname: localhost # Username: root # The following is based on http://phpfour.com/blog/2011/06/painless-ruby-and-rails-installation-on-ubuntumint/ # Install RVM (Ruby Version Manager) bash & &(curl -s https://rvm.beginrescueend.com/install/rvm) # Enter the following in ~/.bash_profile and/or ~/.bashrc (replace YOUR USER NAME with the username you're logged in with): [[ -s "/home/YOUR USER NAME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" ]] && source "/home/YOUR USER NAME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" # This loads RVM into a shell session. rvm use 1.9.2 source .bashrc # Ignore the warning message: WARN: ruby ruby-1.9.2-p290 is not installed. # Install Ruby 1.9.2 rvm install 1.9.2 # Set it as the ruby version to use through rvm: rvm use 1.9.2 source .bashrc # Now you won't get the warning message. # Install latest version of Rails: gem install rails gem install mysql2 -v '0.3.10' mkdir rails_projects cd rails_projects # Create a rails project with MySQL binding: rails new hello -d mysql cd hello rake db:create rails server # browse to localhost:3000
I am running VirtualBox on Windows 7. I had to turn off 3D Acceleration to avoid graphics rendering issues.
I can live without the launchers, I suppose, but I can't live with the graphics rendering problems. Hopefully these will be resolved soon.
