I was able to successfully follow along in the book up until Part III. After getting no where on my own I’m hoping to get some help and clarification regarding installation/usage for Compass under Ubuntu. Below is my progress and results so far.
I’m unable to use Compass as described in the book:
sass --compass myfile.scss myfile.css
When using the above command I receive the following error:
OptionParser::InvalidOption: invalid option: --compass
Use --trace for backtrace.
And although I can successfully use Compass like so:
compass myfile.scss myfile.css
I get the warning:
WARNING: This interface is deprecated. Please use the new subcommand interface.
See `compass help` for more information.
Also following the first instructions for installing Compass gem update—system gives an error:
ERROR: While executing gem ... (RuntimeError)
gem update --system is disabled on Debian, because it will overwrite the content of the rubygems Debian package, and might break your Debian system in subtle ways. The Debian-supported way to update rubygems is through apt-get, using Debian official repositories.
If you really know what you are doing, you can still update rubygems by setting the REALLY_GEM_UPDATE_SYSTEM environment variable, but please remember that this is completely unsupported by Debian.
And even though the second step gem install compass says:
Successfully installed compass-0.11.7
...when I run compass -v it returns:
- Is there a guideline to the best min. recommended version no. for everything to play nice with each other?
- Is there a alternate recommended way to install Compass in Ubuntu?
- How can I get sass—compass to work?
- Ubuntu v. 11.04
- Gem v. 1.3.7
- Ruby v. 1.8.7
- Haml/Sass v. 3.0.15 (Classy Cassidy)
