CLI Installation for Ubuntu

To get our CLI running on Ubuntu, just install our Ruby gem package:

First install Ruby 1.9.3 or newer, if you don’t have it already:

Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty

Trusty and newer use version 1.9.3 by default, so just install the ruby package:

$ sudo apt-get install ruby

Ubuntu 12.04 Precise

Ubuntu Precise uses Ruby 1.8 by default, so you must explicitly install the ruby1.9.3 package:

$ sudo apt-get install ruby1.9.3

Install the CLI Ruby Gem

You should now be ready to install the CLI Ruby Gem.
