Hi all,
i think i installed Homebrew using this command:
ruby -e “$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)”

i looked for it everywhere i could think of in my iMac desktop, just to verify that it worked. --(I am not a tech-savvy person, so please keep you reply super simple okay!)-- But i can’t find it-- anyone tell me how to see if it got installed?

You interact with Homebrew purely through your Terminal.

@z.ixa open terminal and type “brew”. If you see “Example usage…” you’re good. If you see “command not found”, you’re not.

Thanks! :slight_smile:
When i typed in “brew”, i got “command not found”, so that means i don’t
have it installed, but i don’t have to worry about anything if im okay with
not having it, right? (ie. there won’t be any related problems with my
having tried to do so previously?)

many blessings!

@z.ixa I don’t see how it would be an issue. When you gave the command it would’ve started showing all these things downloading.
