Re: [Zephyr Main] WEST File Initialization Problem

Marti Bolivar <marti@...>

What version of Ubuntu are you using?

If you ran "pip3 install --user west" and west cannot be run afterwards, it sounds like the directory that the west binary was installed into is not on your $PATH. Older versions of Ubuntu sometimes have this issue; I forget which ones.

Usually this directory is ~/.local/bin. Please ensure this directory is on your PATH environment variable and try again.

If that doesn't work, you can confirm where west was installed by running "pip3 show -f west"; check both the Location: value and the [...]/bin/west relative path in the Files: list that follows.

No command 'west' found, did you mean:
Command 'test' from package 'coreutils' (main)
west: command not found

Happy to try to help, but could you please provide details? The below email is a bit vague: "commands given on the website cannot recognize the West file" doesn't provide much context on what went wrong.

- what is your host operating system?
- what commands did you type?
- what was the output?
- what output did you expect?

Feel free to just copy and paste rather than taking screenshots of the terminal window.
