Problems with using Flickraw


Hello everyone

I’m new to this jekyll thing and gem thing and wanted to start with builiding a website for my photography. I found a plugin for importing flickr pictures into the website called "flickraw"
I have used the command below to install the plugin

gem install flickraw

and got this message

Fetching: flickraw-0.9.9.gem (100%)
Successfully installed flickraw-0.9.9
Parsing documentation for flickraw-0.9.9
Installing ri documentation for flickraw-0.9.9
Done installing documentation for flickraw after 0 seconds
1 gem installed

I checked the installation folder and there were files installed!

I placed the needed files from here into the _plugins folder

When I built the site, following error occured:

Dependency Error: Yikes! It looks like you don't have /mnt/c/Users/Joel von Rotz/Desktop/FlickrWebsite/_plugins/indii-
jekyll-flickr.rb or one of its dependencies installed. In order to use Jekyll as currently configured, you'll need to install this
gem. The full error message from Ruby is: 'cannot load such file -- flickraw' If you run into trouble, you can find helpful 
resources at!

Why is this happening? I don’t understand what the error message is trying to say, except it kind of can’t load the flickraw file

But well, I’m fairly new to jekyll and gems and I need help resolving this problem.

Its possible it does not like the spaces in your username and that is making it fail. Can you try moving your root folder to something like C/jekyll ? Since the folder is on your desktop the path includes your username, moving it to a more specific location may work.


Maybe try to add the new installed gem into your Gemfile?:thinking:
