local npm-packages work as predicted, but it seems impossible for me to get globally-installed packages running. It doesn’t even throw any error, it’s just not doing anything ( express, coffee, etc.. )
This was not bothering me much until I wanted to use coffee-script.
things I allready checked ( I’m on Xubuntu 12.04 ):
- npm lists it
- its installed in /usr/local/bin
- ( updated | uninstalled | reinstalled ) npm via ( npm | apt-get )
uninstalled nodejs and did fresh git-rebuild to /opt/bin/node
=> same thing..
anyone knows a solution?
turns out it tried to start with
node instead of
nodejs command. So in
/usr/local/lib/node_modules/coffee-script/bin/coffee I changed
#!/usr/bin/env node to
#!/usr/bin/env nodejs and works fine now.
