Linux: Installing Ruby on Rails

The official Ruby on Rails documentation has a good guide on how to install Ruby on Rails. I still had some problems setting everything up, so here I will describe how I installed Ruby on Rails on Linux (LMDE).
Installing Ruby on Linux Before installing Ruby on Rails we need to install Ruby as well as Ruby Gems and sqlite:
sudo apt-get install ruby rubygems sqlite3 Installing Ruby on Rails on Linux sudo gem install rails -V -V because otherwise you will get no direct feedback.

Installing QGIS on LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition)

The solution that I found for installing qgis (Quantum GIS) on LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) is not optimal, but the only one that worked for me.
I am getting QGIS directly from the QGIS Debian repository and I am temporarily adding the main debian repository to my sources, because QGIS depends on some packages that are not included in LMDE.
