Package: libwxgtk2.8-0

Attempting to execute a ruby script leads to error: 
/var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/wxruby-2.0.0-x86_64-linux/lib/wxruby2.so: libwx_gtk2u_media-2.8.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory - /var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/wxruby-2.0.0-x86_64-linux/lib/wxruby2.so (LoadError)
	from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in `require'
	from /var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/wxruby-2.0.0-x86_64-linux/lib/wx.rb:12
	from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:36:in `gem_original_require'
	from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:36:in `require'
	from 1.rb:2

The code to the ruby script looks like this(copied from wxWidgets):
 require "rubygems"
 require "wx"
 include Wx 

 class MinimalApp < App
    def on_init
         Frame.new(nil, -1, "The Bare Minimum").show()


Expected Behavior: A window to pop up with the text "The Bare Minimum"
Kernel:  2.6.34 #1 SMP PREEMPT x86_64 GNU/Linux

Looks like the file is missing.  The file appears in older packages specifically version
