Hi,

I released rcairo(*1) 1.8.3 that supports Ruby 1.9.2:
http://raa.ruby-lang.org/project/rcairo/

(*1) A library to use cairo(*2) from Ruby.

(*2) A 2D graphics library that is used by
GTK+/Firefox/WebKit/... as rendering backend and worked
on multi-platform. cairo can output PDF, PNG, SVG and
so on too.

When I run this I get the following error:

This application has failed to start because libcairo-2.dll was not found.
Re-installing the application may fix this problem

Thanks for trying it.
Could you download
* http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies/fontconfig_2.8.0-2_win32.zip
* http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/binaries/win32/dependencies/freetype_2.4.2-1_win32.zip
and extract them into
#{GEM_HOME}/1.9.1/gems/cairo-1.8.3/vendor/local/
?

Here are correct places:
#{GEM_HOME}/1.9.1/gems/cairo-1.8.3/vendor/local/bin/freetype6.dll
#{GEM_HOME}/1.9.1/gems/cairo-1.8.3/vendor/local/bin/libfontconfig-1.dll

Then please try "require 'cairo'" again.

If the above instruction makes rcairo work on Windows, I
will update rcairo gem for Windows.


Thanks,
