thank you,

i found an article recommending using ruby193


however i have wanted to learn to use ubuntu, so might as well give it a try,

after installing tzinfo-data , it says could not find rake-10.3.2

i installed rake gem, but now cant find coffee-script-source-1.7.0

got it working...

Did you include the gem in your gemfile?

in the app's main directory there's a file called gemfile

gem 'tzinfo-data'

I highly recommend using the same versions they use in the videos. You can learn about verifying the versions with Google. You may want to look into RVM or manually installing and setting the version you are looking for.

I'm pretty experienced with Windows, but I always have trouble doing web development on it. I usually work from a Virtual Machine (VMWare player - free) running Ubuntu. It's also easier to follow along with the videos because they seem to always use Macs. On there RVM is super easy to use.
