Grails commands don't work

  • Posted September 11, 2014

I installed grails on a new Ubuntu droplet using gvm. Doing gvm list grails shows that grails 2.3.8 is installed, as expected. Doing any grails commands causes the screen to refresh and does nothing else. Anyone else experience this?



What’s the output of which grails ?

Grails seems to be installed correctly. The only thing that I can think of is that Java is not installed. In fact, I just tested it. If I remove my Java installation, grails shows the same behavior that you’re describing.

To install Java, run:

sudo apt-get install default-jdk
