    All modern versions of Ruby have RubyGems included so there should be no need to run ruby setup.rb. What version of Ruby did you install?

    How did you run setup.rb?

    I believe it is (9/22/13) version of Ruby

    I ran it by using the command ./setup.rb in the director where this file (setup) was found

    You need to run ruby setup.rb. The file is not executable. See the "Manual Install" directions at the bottom of UPGRADING.rdoc in your unpacked tarball.

    Also note that ruby 1.8.7 is long out of date and no longer receives security fixes.

    Thank you for your patience, I am working on the "Manuel Install"
