Installing Rails on Ubuntu Edgy

I've found various online instructions for installing Rails on Ubuntu
but none of them are perfect. First things first, I already have Ruby
1.8.4 installed. The executable was named ruby1.8 so I alias'd it to
ruby so gem would work. I installed rubygems-0.9.2 successfully and
all the other libraries like rdoc, irb, etc.

Here is what I get when I try and install Rails:

gdboling@gdboling-laptop:~/Desktop/rubygems-0.9.2$ gem install rails --
include-dependencies
Bulk updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.org
ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::GemNotFoundException)
    Could not find rails (> 0) in any repository

Any help is appreciated.

Debian's broken support for Ruby is a FAQ on this newsgroup. Here's
one Ubuntoid answer:

Actually, installing the Rails "stack" (incl. MySql, Apache, Mongrel,
Subversion) on Ubuntu is a no-brainer, thanks to deprec.

There's a free screencast that shows the whole process in one go:

, and it's documented elsewhere :

Please post here about any further battles. I once installed Rails on
a Kubuntu, got it working, tried to install it on another Kubuntu
(from the same distro CD!), and never got it working. Finally I threw
in CentOS, which is a stealth RedHat.
