I installed node-red but the node-red-start command does not work. I get this error:

-bash: node-red-start: command not found

This was an old pi that I recently upgraded from wheezy to Jessie. The GUI interface also does not show node-red in the programming section. What should I check?

If it is not shown in the GUI interface, it is possible that it was not installed properly, or at all. Try:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --reinstall nodered

Then try running node-red-start

  • thanks Patrick - there was a problem with my install. In fact, I had several issues because it seems my attempt to upgrade from wheezy to jessie never really did the trick. I finally burned a new SD with Jessie and rebooted then I was able to install node-red successfully. Commented Jun 10, 2016 at 12:25
