Thanks. The scripts install fine, but tI get error 127 when I run
them. So I googled the error, and it turnsout that I nneda syslink
from wherever ruby is located to /usr/bin/ruby. A suggestion at
linuxquestions suggests that ruby is actually called ruby18 on some
systems, but on mine it is not. And:
dotancohen at ubuntu:~$ which ruby

I went looking for ruby on the system and found it under
/usr/lib/ruby. However, when I create a syslink to there, I get error
126: permission denied. So, what might I do?
