Betty – a “Siri” like command line utility
• Usage examples and installation instructions at http://www.webupd8.org/2014/05/betty-is-like-siri-or-google-now-for.html

Problems:
error1: Failed to fetch http://http.debian.net/debian/pool/main/r/rubygems-integration/rubygems-integration_1.6_all.deb
• Thanks to http://kevinlocke.name/bits/2012/12/06/debian-ruby-gems/ I found a solution
• apt-get install rubygems-integration
error2: Kept getting file notfund errors
• If I CD’d into ~/betty , I could make it work with ruby main.rb +arguements, so it was a path error.
• Tried in ~/.bashrc, replacing alias betty=\”~/betty/main.rb\” with alias betty=\”ruby\ ~/betty/main.rb\”
• What worked, chmod +x ~/betty/main.rb , then in .bashrc use the full path to main.rb

Configuration
• <install dir>/lib/config.rb
