I installed node but npm and node are not recognized in zsh


(Jonas Caluwé) #1

I have installed zsh a couple days ago, but I needed to do this using ubuntu subsystem for windows. When I installed node and npm -just using the .exe-file on the site- it didn’t work on the zsh shell. What is kind of strange is that it does work in powershell and cmd but not in hyper: zsh. I think this has something to do with the $path, but I don’t know what. This is my .zshrc file:

# If you come from bash you might have to change your $PATH.
# export PATH=$HOME/bin:/usr/local/bin:$PATH

# Path to your oh-my-zsh installation.

    export ZSH="/home/jonas/.oh-my-zsh"

    # Set name of the theme to load --- if set to "random", it will

    # load a random theme each time oh-my-zsh is loaded, in which case,

    # to know which specific one was loaded, run: echo $RANDOM_THEME

    # See https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/wiki/Themes

    ZSH_THEME="robbyrussell"

    # Set list of themes to pick from when loading at random

    # Setting this variable when ZSH_THEME=random will cause zsh to load

    # a theme from this variable instead of looking in ~/.oh-my-zsh/themes/

    # If set to an empty array, this variable will have no effect.

    # ZSH_THEME_RANDOM_CANDIDATES=( "robbyrussell" "agnoster" )

    # Uncomment the following line to use case-sensitive completion.

    # CASE_SENSITIVE="true"

    # Uncomment the following line to use hyphen-insensitive completion.

    # Case-sensitive completion must be off. _ and - will be interchangeable.

    # HYPHEN_INSENSITIVE="true"

    # Uncomment the following line to disable bi-weekly auto-update checks.

    # DISABLE_AUTO_UPDATE="true"

    # Uncomment the following line to change how often to auto-update (in days).

    # export UPDATE_ZSH_DAYS=13

    # Uncomment the following line to disable colors in ls.

    # DISABLE_LS_COLORS="true"

    # Uncomment the following line to disable auto-setting terminal title.

    # DISABLE_AUTO_TITLE="true"

    # Uncomment the following line to enable command auto-correction.

    # ENABLE_CORRECTION="true"

    # Uncomment the following line to display red dots whilst waiting for completion.

    # COMPLETION_WAITING_DOTS="true"

    # Uncomment the following line if you want to disable marking untracked files

    # under VCS as dirty. This makes repository status check for large repositories

    # much, much faster.

    # DISABLE_UNTRACKED_FILES_DIRTY="true"

    # Uncomment the following line if you want to change the command execution time

    # stamp shown in the history command output.

    # You can set one of the optional three formats:

    # "mm/dd/yyyy"|"dd.mm.yyyy"|"yyyy-mm-dd"

    # or set a custom format using the strftime function format specifications,

    # see 'man strftime' for details.

    # HIST_STAMPS="mm/dd/yyyy"

    # Would you like to use another custom folder than $ZSH/custom?

    # ZSH_CUSTOM=/path/to/new-custom-folder

    # Which plugins would you like to load?

    # Standard plugins can be found in ~/.oh-my-zsh/plugins/*

    # Custom plugins may be added to ~/.oh-my-zsh/custom/plugins/

    # Example format: plugins=(rails git textmate ruby lighthouse)

    # Add wisely, as too many plugins slow down shell startup.

    plugins=(

    git

    )

    source $ZSH/oh-my-zsh.sh

    # User configuration

    # export MANPATH="/usr/local/man:$MANPATH"

    # You may need to manually set your language environment

    # export LANG=en_US.UTF-8

    # Preferred editor for local and remote sessions

    # if [[ -n $SSH_CONNECTION ]]; then

    # export EDITOR='vim'

    # else

    # export EDITOR='mvim'

    # fi

    # Compilation flags

    # export ARCHFLAGS="-arch x86_64"

    # ssh

    # export SSH_KEY_PATH="~/.ssh/rsa_id"

    # Set personal aliases, overriding those provided by oh-my-zsh libs,

    # plugins, and themes. Aliases can be placed here, though oh-my-zsh

    # users are encouraged to define aliases within the ZSH_CUSTOM folder.

    # For a full list of active aliases, run `alias`.

    #

    # Example aliases

    # alias zshconfig="mate ~/.zshrc"

    # alias ohmyzsh="mate ~/.oh-my-zsh"

can anyone please help me?

Thanks in advance!
