Tired of getting command not found? Here’s a quick guide

  • Navigate to the bin folder for your CLI application in your command line. Then run pwd to “print working directory.”
pwdoutput: /Users/yourcomputer/Documents/google-cloud-sdk/bin
  • append the directory to the $PATH using the following command
path+=('/Users/yourcomputer/Documents/google-cloud-sdk/bin')
  • export the new path
export PATH

.bashrc is a script that runs whenever a Bash shell is started. You can put any commands in this script. This .bashrc file is found in your home directory. So let’s start.

  • Create .bashrc file in home directory. ~ is a shortcut for the home directory.
touch ~/.bashrc
  • open your .barshrc file using nano
nano ~/.bashrc
  • Write a command. In the command below, we add the bin folder to the end of the existing $PATH variable.
PATH=$PATH:~/opt/bin
  • Save and Exit nano: control + x => y (yes) => enter
