Fails starting for me with

<internal:/usr/lib/ruby/3.0.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb>:96:in `require': /usr/lib/ruby/gems/3.0.0/extensions/x86_64-linux/3.0.0/cairo-1.17.8/ undefined symbol: cairo_tee_surface_index - /usr/lib/ruby/gems/3.0.0/extensions/x86_64-linux/3.0.0/cairo-1.17.8/ (LoadError)

In case someone else stumbles upon this: some gem dependencies are obviously outdated. To make it work, I had to execute the following:

gem install --version 3.4.3 atk pango gdk_pixbuf2

Just installed for the first time and ran and I get

/usr/lib/ruby/2.7.0/rubygems/dependency.rb:311:in to_specs': Could not find 'red-colors' (>= 0) among 62 total gem(s) Checked in 'GEM_PATH=/home/lawsa/.gem/ruby/2.7.0:/usr/lib/ruby/gems/2.7.0' , executegem env` for more information

it sort of looks like I need to install the "red-colors" gem? I don't work with ruby, so I don't know how to do that right off, but I'm guessing this shouldn't happen in the first place after a proper installation. Thank you for maintaining this package!

Doesnt build, missing dependency -> ruby-gettext

It does not run. $ screenruler Traceback (most recent call last): 2: from /usr/bin/screenruler:25:in <main>' 1: from /usr/lib/ruby/2.7.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:92:inrequire' /usr/lib/ruby/2.7.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:92:in `require': cannot load such file -- gettext (LoadError)

Unfortunately, neither installing ruby-cairo-gobject nor ruby-locale could make it start.

I have been trying to install this AUR for a while now. It started working after I installed the repository "ruby-cairo-gobject".

With the update of ruby-gettext gnome-screenruler needs ruby-locale now. Please add this dependency

@somepaulo gnome-screenruler creates a helper method Kernel.loop (with 2 arguments), overriding system-wide Kernel.loop (with 0 arguments), and that system-wide method is used when loading gems - which results in this error. Renaming the helper fixes the issue. Here's the PKGBUILD diff that I applied:

On the latest and greatest Gnome 3.28 I get this:

Thank you for looking into this.

@paulodiovani Please remove the pacgem version of cairo-gobject and let me know if gnome-screenruler works with just a "pacaur -S ruby-cairo-gobject"
