Rails mysql2 gem getting error checking for mysql_query() in -lmysqlclient… no

Make sure that you have installed mysql server and mysql client. Else install by

$ sudo apt-get install mysql-server
$ sudo apt-get install mysql-client

After that install the dependency library for mysql

$ sudo apt-get install libmysql-ruby libmysqlclient-dev
