How to get past the “(Gem::Exception) SSL is not installed on this system” error when installing Ruby on Rails

Google Query: ERROR: while executing gem … (Gem::Exception) SSL is not installed on this system
I received this error when I tried to install Ruby on Rails on another Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (7.10) system the other day. After some Google searching I finally found my answer at Nabble.com.
Basically, you have to install “libopenssl-ruby” by typing the following in at the Terminal:
sudo apt-get install libopenssl-ruby
That’s it! You should be able to install Rails without that ssl error now.
I would also like to thank Reader, leondu, for pointing out that Ruby Gems is now at version 0.9.5. I have updated “How to Install ruby on rails on Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon” to reflect the changes and the above error.
