How did you install Bower? It requires Node.js to be installed. For a guide on installing it, see:

If you installed Node.js from the Ubuntu repositories, it installs a nodejs binary but many programs, including Bower, expect it to be named simply node You can create a symlink between the two in order to allow Bower to find it:

sudo ln -s /usr/bin/nodejs /usr/local/bin/node
