Ionic scss: gulp sass error "File to import not found or unreadable" slides

I am getting an error when I run gulp sass. The error is about a missing scss file which should have been there as part of the framework (_slides.scss)

Here is my ionic info:
$ ionic info

Your system information:

Cordova CLI: Not installed
Gulp version: CLI version 3.9.1
Gulp local: Local version 3.9.1
Ionic Framework Version: 1.3.1
Ionic CLI Version: 2.0.0
Ionic App Lib Version: 2.0.0
OS: /bin/sh: lsb_release: command not found
Node Version: v6.0.0

And here is the error:
$ gulp sass
[06:59:25] Using gulpfile ~/public_html/my/QBapp/circleApp/gulpfile.js
[06:59:25] Starting ‘sass’…
Error in plugin 'sass’
Error: File to import not found or unreadable: slides

[06:59:25] Finished ‘sass’ after 106 ms
[ec2-user@ip-172-31-17-207 circleApp]$

Here is the ionic.scss

@charset “UTF-8”;

// Ionicons

What am I missing? How do I fix this?


Did you run ionic setup sass?
When yes then ->
Delete all inside the lib folder and run bower install

hope that helps
