I managed to have some problems with my computer which made it so I had to install an old copy of Ubuntu Server 14.04 as my main operating system and configure a desktop environment. (Sounds easy, but dear god my computer has some problems.)
Luckily I was able to restore my project files for my application, considering I’m getting ready for production.
However I’m having a problem getting the Cordova / Ionic command line to work.
administrator@master-server:~/qualify/production⟫ ionic /usr/bin/env: node: No such file or directory
I have installed nodejs through the universal repositories, as-well as npm with the following commands
sudo apt-get install nodejs sudo apt-get install npm
I then installed cordova and ionic.
sudo npm install -g cordova ionic
Both installations completed successfully.
Based on the error “node: no such file or directory” i believe that ionic command line is looking for node instead of nodejs however,
node doesn’t seem to have anything to do with nodejs.
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required: ax25-node folks-common gir1.2-accountsservice-1.0 gir1.2-atspi-2.0 gir1.2-caribou-1.0 gir1.2-clutter-1.0 gir1.2-cogl-1.0 gir1.2-coglpango-1.0 gir1.2-gck-1 gir1.2-gcr-3 gir1.2-gdesktopenums-3.0 gir1.2-gdm-1.0 gir1.2-gmenu-3.0 gir1.2-gnomedesktop-3.0 gir1.2-json-1.0 gir1.2-mutter-3.0 gir1.2-networkmanager-1.0 gir1.2-nmgtk-1.0 gir1.2-polkit-1.0 gir1.2-telepathyglib-0.12 gir1.2-telepathylogger-0.2 gir1.2-upowerglib-1.0 gjs gnome-accessibility-themes gnome-contacts gnome-shell-common gnome-themes-standard gnome-themes-standard-data gtk2-engines-pixbuf libax25 libcaribou-common libcaribou0 libdee-1.0-4 libfolks-eds25 libfolks-telepathy25 libfolks25 libgdm1 libgee-0.8-2 libgjs0e libgnome-menu-3-0 libmbim-glib0 libmozjs-24-0 libmutter0d libopenvg1-mesa libqmi-glib0 libzeitgeist-2.0-0 mutter-common openbsd-inetd python-zeitgeist usb-modeswitch usb-modeswitch-data zeitgeist zeitgeist-core zeitgeist-datahub
I should probably add that installing the node package does remove the error about not being able to find node, however no functionality is executed. No information is presented, and no progress was made. I had then removed node with
sudo apt-get remove --purge node
