I tried installing
via asdf in my zsh shell. Enabled the versions locally and globally.
When I list them via ‘asdf list elixir’ or ‘asdf list erlang’ the correct versions are listed but not usable.
→ it keeps on showing: zsh: command not found: iex
I had the latest version of Elixir installed by homebrew before, which worked flawlessly.
Before the installation via asdf I uninstalled the brew installed version.
It keeps on not working after updating my OS(Monterey 12.2.1), updating brew, cleaning up brew, copying suggested lines to zsh, restarting my computer, etc.
Does anyone runs into the same issue or knows a workaround? Am I overlooking something?
Can you check the output of the following commands:
asdf which elixir
asdf which iex
Did you try
asdf reshim ?
Using iex with full path works but using only
iex command does not work ?
~/.asdf/shims/ folder is included in path.
Commands like iex, elixir, erl are resolved to files in the shims folder.
You can check $PATH variable if
~/.asdf/shims/ folder is included.
Did you install asdf using brew ?
Also not sure if it’s any help, but try following this guide - this has always worked for me on a new Mac or after a clean install.
mix local.hex what that do for you
I would also try a dumb terminal with no zsh, see if that functions normally so you can narrow the surface area of this bug.
So if I type in these commands:
(base) ➜ ~ asdf which elixir
(base) ➜ ~ HOME/.asdf/installs/elixir/1.11.2/bin/elixir --version
HOME/.asdf/installs/elixir/1.11.2/bin/elixir: line 230: exec: erl: not found
I get the error above.
So I tried fixing it with setting export erl=HOME/.asdf/installs/erlang/23.3.4/bin/erl
(base) ➜ ~ echo $erl
but just typing
(base) ➜ ~ erl
zsh: command not found: erl
Seems to me this is a zsh issue or I’m making a mistake?
Setting erl variable in environment is different from adding it to $PATH.
if you want to erl to path - it should be
You should be adding
~/.asdf/shims if it is not present.
Can you try this:
I tried doing this and it worked fine, but after restarting my laptop asdf is gone. I tried this twice ad asdf gets uninstalled both the times after restarting my laptop, what should I do?
Did you put the
export command right into your terminal or did you put it in your shell configuration file?(something like
The first solution will only work for your current terminal session, whereas the latter solution will run the
export command at each terminal session startup.
in my shell config file. Sorry for the late response, the problem got solved after sometime without me doing anything.
