sh: composer: command not found

Posted 2 years ago by Nicoeg

I know that there are a million threads on this problem, and at this point I believe I've tried every single one.

The problem happens whenever I call the Laravel installer: laravel new app.

When I call composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel app everything works fine.

I'm using zsh and my path looks like this: export PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:$HOME/.composer/vendor/bin:$PATH".

What could possibly be the reason for this not working?
