[Fixed]-Yuglify compressor can't find binary from package installed through npm


After 3 hours of suffering, I have found the solution.

This is happening because of a misnaming error, if you install from a package manager (npm) your bin may be called nodejs so you just need to symlink it like this:

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

Now it is working. This didn’t happen with the older version, its is something new. But at least it is working again. I hope this helps someone else out there. 🙂



In my case both uglify-js and cssmin were somehow not installed.

So I have re-installed them again by using following command and then it starts working again.

sudo npm install -g cssmin uglify-js
