Basically, I'm trying to create a vagrant box on Ubuntu for development of Laravel web applications. I've done this on Windows, OS X and now I'm trying to use my Ubuntu laptop for this. I setup VirtualBox and installed Vagrant no problem but the Laravel documentation calls for this vagrant command:
vagrant box add laravel/homestead
Instead of properly setting up a box - as it does in Windows and OS X - I get an error:
This command was not invoked properly. The help for this command is available below. Usage: vagrant box add <name> <url> [--provider provider] [-h] --checksum VALUE Checksum --checksum-type VALUE Checksum type -c, --clean Remove old temporary download if it exists. -f, --force Overwrite an existing box if it exists. --insecure If set, SSL certs will not be validated. --cacert certfile CA certificate --cert certfile The client SSL cert --provider provider The provider that backs the box. -h, --help Print this help
What is different between Ubuntu and my other systems where I have had no problem?
Please note: I do not wish to install a web stack directly onto my desktop which is why I have chosen to isolate them to virtual machines.
