+ rake compile


  • rake19 compile (assuming this is the name of your 1.9.1 version of rake)

NB: be sure to run the version of rake that corresponds to the ruby version you wish to use! on my system I use rake19 for ruby 1.9.1!

If all goes well, run the example programs:

  • cd examples
  • ruby example_melt.rb
  • ruby example_simple.rb
  • ..etc

  • like any gosu application, must be in the current directory (or the gosu gem installed) when running the examples.
