Pod setup cannot find cocoapods
After installing cocoapods with sudo gem install cocoapods, attempting to run "pod setup" returns this error:
Could not find 'cocoapods' (>= 0) among 22 total gem(s) (Gem::LoadError)
Output from "pod setup":
/Users/Kevin/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p194/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/dependency.rb:313:in `to_specs': Could not find 'cocoapods' (>= 0) among 22 total gem(s) (Gem::LoadError) Checked in 'GEM_PATH=/Users/Kevin/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p194:/Users/Kevin/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p194@global', execute `gem env` for more information from /Users/Kevin/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p194/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/dependency.rb:322:in `to_spec' from /Users/Kevin/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p194/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_gem.rb:53:in `gem' from /Users/Kevin/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p194/bin/pod:22:in `<main>'
When I check the directory listed in GEM_PATH, it includes:
... drwxr-xr-x 5 root staff 170B Jun 16 23:35 cocoapods-core-0.33.1/ drwxr-xr-x 5 Kevin staff 170B Jun 16 23:41 cocoapods-downloader-0.6.1/ drwxr-xr-x 15 Kevin staff 510B Jun 16 23:41 cocoapods-plugins-0.2.0/ drwxr-xr-x 11 Kevin staff 374B Jun 16 23:41 cocoapods-trunk-0.1.3/ drwxr-xr-x 15 Kevin staff 510B Jun 16 23:41 cocoapods-try-0.3.0/ ...
So the files are there, though its core is root since I used sudo gem install cocoapods.
Solutions suggested on previous Stack Overflow questions that I've tried:
Install cocoapods without sudo: Suggested here. However, even following these instructions I get permission denied when trying to use gem install cocoapods.
Sudo pod setup: Suggested here. However, pod tells me that I can't use it in sudo.
Change permissions for cocoapods files: Suggested here. I tried running the lines provided by the top answer but it says that those files do not exist.
How do I get pod setup to work?
Don't use sudo.
1: sudo gem uninstall cocoapods 2: gem install cocoapods 3: pod install
I had the same issue. I solved it by
- Removing cocoapods
- Reinstalling it using rvmsudo instead of sudo rvmsudo gem install cocoapods
Hope it helps!
if your osx is 10.11 use sudo gem install -n /usr/local/bin GEM_NAME_HERE
Run command rvm use system in Terminal,then the installation worked even though the system Ruby is 2.0.0.
