CSS Compass Basics Getting Started with Compass Creating a Compass Project

compass watch will not run

Yet another problem with compass. I have tried on two different computers and two different operating systems. I could not make it work in Windows 7 on two computers and now am failing in Linux Mint. This is so frustrating.

My first problem was installing compass, but I think that was solved when I loaded the Ruby Dev tools. It properly creates a compass project but then gives the following error on watching:

ted@ted-Lenovo-G770 ~/web/play_site $ compass watch --trace LoadError on line ["36"] of /usr/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/custom_require.rb: cannot load such file -- fssm /usr/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/custom_require.rb:36:in require' /usr/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/compass/commands/watch_project.rb:70:inperform' /usr/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/compass/commands/base.rb:18:in execute' /usr/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/compass/commands/project_base.rb:19:inexecute' /usr/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/compass/exec/sub_command_ui.rb:43:in perform!' /usr/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/compass/exec/sub_command_ui.rb:15:inrun!' /usr/bin/compass:30:in block in <main>' /usr/bin/compass:44:incall' /usr/bin/compass:44:in `<main>' ted@ted-Lenovo-G770 ~/web/play_site $

Any help is appreciated.

This was solved with switching to Linux OS and installing from there.
