Not finding the gradlew command?


Gradlew is helping me with a Java project. My operating system is Ubuntu Linux. When I run “gradle,” it executes and provides me with information. “No command ‘gradlew’ found, did you mean: Command ‘gradle’ from package ‘gradle’ (universe) gradlew: command not found,” it says when I run “gradlew.”

I done my homework, installed jdk, and installed gradle with sudo apt-get install gradle. I’m completely clueless.

Just running, as mentioned in the comments, isn’t enough.


It was effective for me. Because it isn’t in the path, the./ tells it to look in the current directory.

Gradle wrapper must be created. Run gradle wrapper —gradle-version 2.13 to see what happens. Remember to replace 2.13 with the version number of your Gradle. You should see new scripts in your project folder after running this command. You should be able to build your code using the wrapper with./gradlew build. More information can be found here:

Because file characteristics can change when transferring from one OS to another, I use chmod 755 gradlew to run this bash script (Windows, Linux and Mac).

If you’re using a Mac, try granting gradlew root access by typing

chmod +x ./gradlew

I’m having the same issue… I use the following command to check the permissions of the wrx file: -rw-rw-r— $ls -l./gradlew (no execute permission)

So I used the command $chmod +x./gradlew to address the problem.
