Ruby Question

Why am I getting a command not found for Padrino?

EDIT: This seems to work on my CentOS machine but not my Ubuntu box.

$ which gem
$ which padrino
$ which padrino-gen

I started playing with Sinatra but when I started thinking about some admin/authentication support I was lead to Padrino.

Problem is as follows.

I ran:

sudo gem install padrino

but then when I ran the create command, I got a command not found issue:

$ padrino g project demo-app
padrino: command not found

This seems to work in my directory where I created my heroku app because there's a gemfile there so I can run
bundle exec
before the
command. But shouldn't I be able to create a padrino project without a gemfile??


this worked for me in Ubuntu 11.04

# Setup Ubuntu LTS 10.4

>tar zxvf rubygems-1.3.6.tgz 
cd rubygems-1.3.6
sudo ruby setup.rb
sudo gem1.8 install rake rspec padrino --no-ri --no-rdoc
padrino g project foo -d activerecord -b
padrino g admin
padrino rake ar:setup
