How to install brew on Ubuntu Ruby on Rails on 14.04?

I followed the tutorial How To Install and Use LinuxBrew on a Linux VPS.

But I still can't run brew.

These were the steps I took

  1. I cd back to root then git clone the repo
  2. update apps using apt-get update
  3. $ git clone https://github.com/Homebrew/linuxbrew.git ~/.linuxbrew
  4. rewrite the file .bashrc with the snippet provided above
  5. try which brew

I am running Ubuntu Ruby on Rails on 14.04.

Help would be greatly appreciated!

  • Did you try sourcing your .bashrc file to make sure that the changes have taken effect in your terminal session?

    • source ~/.bashrc
