Install Mechanize On Debian

Installing mechanize gem on Debian should be as easy as running this command

gem install mechanize

but this won’t succeed unless you install these packages on your Debian machine

apt-get install libxml-dev libxslt1-dev

Once installed, gem will be installed seamlessly

Update:

if the above apt-get command didn't work with you and you got an error that package doesn't exist

try this new line

apt-get install libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev

as some packages names has changed
