Hi and thanks for looking!
I am new to Linux/Ubuntu, but I have set up an Ubuntu box on which to run Node.js.
I have had moderate success, but now I need to be able to easily upgrade my version of Node.
Many folks recommend using Node Version Manager. I followed the directions, but when I try to do something like this:
I get a messaging stating that
No command NVM found
I have gone back to check the steps I followed to install NVM, but there is one part that is tricky for may and I think to be the culprit: sourcing the file for bash.
From the instructions:
To activate nvm, you need to source it from your bash shell
I always add this line to my
file to have it automatically sources upon login. Often I also put in
a line to use a specific version of node.
So which file should I add this to? I am guessing
profile since it's Ubuntu?
Also, where in the file do I add this line? After I have added this line, do I need to reboot or anything?
Any help would be deeply appreciated--especially if you can show me an example
profile file with
. ~/nvm/nvm.sh integrated so that I can see usage.
