📱 Flutter command not found? Here's the easy fix! 💪

Are you getting frustrated with the error message bash: flutter: command not found when trying to run Flutter commands in the terminal of Android Studio? Don't worry, we've got you covered! 🤩

🚀 The Problem

This issue commonly occurs when the Flutter SDK is not properly installed or configured on your system. Flutter commands are not recognized by the terminal, leading to the frustrating "command not found" error. 😔

💡 The Solution

Fear not, we have some easy solutions to get your Flutter commands up and running smoothly in no time! 🎉

1. Check Flutter Installation

First off, verify that you have installed Flutter on your machine correctly. Open a terminal and run the following command:

flutter --version

If you see the flutter command not found error again, it means Flutter is not added to your system's PATH.

2. Update System's PATH Variable

To resolve this, you need to update your system's PATH variable:

  1. Locate the Flutter installation directory on your system. Typically, it is found at a path like /Users/<YOUR-USERNAME>/flutter or C:\flutter.

  2. Open your terminal and run the following command:

    • For macOS/Linux:

    export PATH="$PATH:/PATH/TO/FLUTTER_DIRECTORY/flutter/bin"
    • For Windows (CMD):

    • For Windows (Powershell):

    $env:Path = "$env:Path;C:\PATH\TO\FLUTTER_DIRECTORY\flutter\bin"

    Remember to replace /PATH/TO/FLUTTER_DIRECTORY with the actual path to your Flutter installation directory.

  3. Restart your terminal or open a new terminal window.

  4. Run flutter --version again to verify that Flutter is now recognized.

3. Check for Flutter Upgrades

Occasionally, such issues can occur if your Flutter version is outdated. Run the following command to upgrade Flutter to the latest version:

flutter upgrade

4. Verify Flutter Doctor

Run flutter doctor command to check for any additional dependencies or configuration issues. It will provide a comprehensive report on your Flutter installation.

flutter doctor

Follow the prompts to resolve any warnings or errors. This step is crucial to ensure your Flutter development environment is set up correctly.
