compass dosent work for me

hi all. i have install compass(followed instructions on compass home
page) but when i run the compass command my terminal returns the
"compass: command not found" error.
my os is ubuntu, rails version 2.3.5, ruby 1.8

any one has idea???

regards,
nirosh.

Did you do `gem install compass` or `sudo gem install compass` ?

What does `gem list --local compass` output?

*** LOCAL GEMS ***

compass (0.10.4)

but getting error when running "compass version"
error msg is "compass: command not found"

*** LOCAL GEMS ***

compass (0.10.4)

but getting error when running "compass version"
error msg is "compass: command not found"

So it's not in your PATH. You didn't answer this question:

yes i did install compass gem

yes i did install compass gem

OK, one more time:

Did you do `gem install compass` or `sudo gem install compass` ?

The answer is not "yes", it's `which command did you use?`.

sudo gem install compass.
but getting error when running "compass version" that populate an
error msg ("compass: command not found")

Odd, but apparently it didn't get added to your existing PATH.

You'll have to find where it got installed and add that location to your
PATH manually.

Might try

locate "bin/compass"

to see what bin directory it is installed in and compare against your
path.
