This is a set of bindings for the GNOME 3.x and 4.x libraries to use from Ruby 2.5, 2.6 and 2.7.


Install the current releases.

The gems of the Ruby-GNOME projects can be easily installed with the gem command. For example in order to install the gtk3 gem and its dependencies:

gem install gtk3

Install from GitHub master branch

You can also install these gems from GitHub master branch.

Create Gemfile like the following:

source ""

git "" do
  gem "gtk3"

Install these gems by Bundler:

% bundle install

Advanced Installation

% ruby extconf.rb
% make
% sudo make install

To compile and install a particular sub-binding, you can add arguments:

% ruby extconf.rb [subdir]...
e.g.) ruby extconf.rb glib2 pango atk gdk_pixbuf2 gtk2

Or you can compile each sub-binding:

% cd <each sub-directory>
% ruby extconf.rb
% make
% sudo make install

extconf.rb options

  • --ruby

    • ruby directory
  • --topsrcdir

    • top source directory
  • --topdir

    • top directory
  • --strict

    • if some libraries fail to compile/install, "make" command returns 1(exit 1)
