I think libglade2-ruby has been deprecated and a port to Gtk::Builder is necessary.

I'm still unsure about libgtkglext1-ruby and libavcodec-extra-52.

According to the changelog, it was dropped as it has been deprecated upstream.

    upstream:
    - libart2-ruby
    - libart2-ruby1.8
    - libart2-ruby1.8-dbg

Changed in luz:
milestone: none → 1.0

The dependence on libglade has been removed in trunk, so we're a big step closer to running in 11.10+.

I still don't know what we should be using for GL support in Ruby-Gtk+, now that gtkglext is gone.

Changed in luz:
assignee: nobody → Ian McIntosh (ian-mcintosh)
status: Confirmed → In Progress
Ian McIntosh (ian-mcintosh) wrote :

The maintainer of the Ruby-Gtk bindings reports that "We dropped [GtkGLExt] because nobody can maintain it."[1]

This leaves a few options:

1) Find a new maintainer for GtkGlExt in the official bindings

2) Adopt the GtkGlExt bindings into the Luz repo

3) Move to Luz 2.0, which includes dropping Gtk in Luz Studio and moving to a pure Ruby + OpenGL interface, with the benefits of Windows and OSX support, easy multi-user-over-a-LAN (aka LuzNet)

It seems that (2) could be a good short term solution, especially now that Luz is packaged for Ubuntu.

hm. I somehow got it to work on 12.04

I copied the /usr/lib/site_ruby folder from maverick (where luz works perfectly) into /opt/luz/lib on my percise install.

then I open terminal in precise:

   export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/luz/lib/pkgconfig/:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH
   export RUBYLIB=/opt/luz/lib/site_ruby/:$RUBYLIB

external dependencies: some are set for caution, e.g have not tried serial:

   sudo apt-get install ruby-builder, ruby-rmagick, ruby-serialport, ruby-blankslate, ruby-inline, libcairo-ruby, imagemagick, libopengl-ruby1.8, ffmpeg, libavcodec-extra-53

then get sources:

   bzr co --lightweight lp:~ian-mcintosh/luz/trunk luz

Now I had to replace Gdk::Keyval::GDK_ to Gdk::Keyval::GDK_KEY_ in all souce-files, as the naming for Keyval changed.

, and then make in luz folder worked.

Works fine as far as I can tell, albeit a bit hacky method.

I will make a package out of it, if there is demand I'll share it.

Luz development has moved to GitHub:

https://github.com/lighttroupe/luz

There are some instructions there for using it in 12.04.
