I am trying to install Redcar on Ubuntu using RVM. I have read countless articles about it and i still get this error message.

I followed this article in particular. http://azazeal.xelixis.net/post/How-to-install-Redcar-editor-under-Ubuntu-1010-with-RVM.aspx

Do you guys know what I am missing here?

The key statement here is ``exec': No such file or directory - java`

Check out this thread on the RedCar mailing list. It looks like you probably don't have java installed. RedCar is a JRuby application so you need Java for it to function

The Java Ubuntu installation documentation should help you to install Java. Once that's done, it should just work
