Vagrant Up Command Not Found

I'm attempting to setup a Ruby Development Environment.

After downloading the Treehouse VM, I run

jasons-imac:treehouse jasonniebauer$ ls
Vagrantfile projects
jasons-imac:treehouse jasonniebauer$ vagrant up
-bash: vagrant: command not found
jasons-imac:treehouse jasonniebauer$ vagrant up
-bash: vagrant: command not found

What am I doing wrong?

James Barnett Well, I figured out what the issue is. I downloaded Vagrant, but in the midst of installing everything, I forgot to install Vagrant! No wonder the command could not be found :)

Thanks for your assistance though.

What do you get when you execute echo $PATHand find / -name vagrant commands?

Permission denied means you are searching areas your user account doesn't have access to. You can use sudo find / -name vagrant

I attempted:

jasons-imac:treehouse jasonniebauer$ sudo -name vagrant
usage: sudo -h | -K | -k | -L | -V
usage: sudo -v [-AknS] [-g groupname|#gid] [-p prompt] [-u user name|#uid]
usage: sudo -l[l] [-AknS] [-g groupname|#gid] [-p prompt] [-U user name] [-u
            user name|#uid] [-g groupname|#gid] [command]
usage: sudo [-AbEHknPS] [-C fd] [-g groupname|#gid] [-p prompt] [-u user
            name|#uid] [-g groupname|#gid] [VAR=value] [-i|-s] [<command>]
usage: sudo -e [-AknS] [-C fd] [-g groupname|#gid] [-p prompt] [-u user
            name|#uid] file ...

not really sure what this means...

The command is not:

sudo -name vagrant

It's ...

sudo find / -name vagrant
