Ubuntu Valet command not found

On a new install of Ubuntu installing Valet worked fine at the composer stage but when trying to run valet commands resulted in 'Valet: command not found" errors. The problem is composer has not been added to the $PATH I tried adding the composer path to .profile which I think was not been executed the way I thought. Instead, I updated the path inside .bash_profile:


Then updated my path:

export PATH=~/.composer/vendor/bin:$PATH

To ensure it took effect I reloaded the profile by running the command:

source ~/.profile

After then I was able to run Valet commands.

For the past 12 years, I’ve been developing applications for the web using mostly PHP. I do this for a living and love what I do as every day there is something new and exciting to learn.

In my spare time, the web development community is a big part of my life. Whether managing online programming groups and blogs or attending a conference, I find keeping involved helps me stay up to date. This is also my chance to give back to the community that helped me get started, a place I am proud to be apart of.

Besides programming I love spending time with friends and family and can often be found together going out catching the latest movie, staying in playing games on the sofa or planning a trip to someplace I’ve never been before.
