What IDEs are available for Ubuntu?

I am in search of a light-weight RoR IDE for Ubuntu. Netbeans is good but bulky for a beginner. Same is true with Eclipse.

Is there any simple IDE which is also FREE?

rails.vim provides a very convenient environment for working with Rails projects in Vim, just watch the screencast. However, I wouldn't recommend it to a beginner who's never used Vim. It's better to focus on learning one thing at a time.
