Installing on Ubuntu


On Ubuntu, you need superuser privileges to install software. To run a command with superuser privileges, precede it with sudo.

  1. Install the Ruby package.

    sudo apt-get install ruby1.9.1
    
  2. Install the AppFog gem

    sudo gem install af
    
  3. Install the Sinatra gem

    sudo gem install af
    

Note

The sudo command works for users with administrator status. The first user created when Ubuntu is installed automatically gets administrator status.
