I used rvm to install ruby 2.2.3. Then I installed rails 4.2.5. I create an app by rails new ... and then cd into it. I try to run it with rails server. And...

~/.rvm/gems/ruby-2.2.3/gems/bundler-1.11.0/lib/bundler/runtime.rb:80:in `rescue in block (2 levels) in require': There was an error while trying to load the gem 'uglifier'. (Bundler::GemRequireError)

That's what I get. In my Gemfile I have `gem 'uglifier', '>= 1.3.0'.

What am I missing? It's my first try in RoR and it's getting a bit frustrating.

Actually having meteor installed doesn't count as having nodejs installed. nodejs is required for uglifier package, so simple: apt install nodejs resolves the issue.
