Error usr bin env node No such file or directory

0 votes

I installed node js and npm via apt-get install and all of the dependencies, then I installed browserify

npm install browserify -g

it goes through the process and it seems like it installed correctly, but when I try to do a simple bundle per this walkthrough

I get the error:

/usr/bin/env: node: No such file or directory

How to solve this?

Hello @kartik,

You have to manually link to "node" as many packages are programmed after the "node" binary. Something similar also occurs with "python2" not linked to "python".

In this case you can do an easy symlink. For linux distributions which install package binaries to /usr/bin you can do

ln -s /usr/bin/nodejs /usr/bin/node

Hope it helps!!

Thank you!!
