Installing ionic

If you are running a 64-bit version of Ubuntu, you’ll need to install the 32-bit libraries since Android is only 32-bit at the moment. Use the below command:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

If you are on Ubuntu 13.04 or greater, ia32-libs has been removed. You can use the following packages instead:

sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0

Use command sudo npm install -g ionic

sudo npm install -g ionic

Verify the installation of Ionic using command ionic info

Verify the Ionic installation

In case, the Cordova CLI is undetectable, use sudo npm install -g cordova command

And verify if it’s ready by using npm -v cordova

Checking Cordova version
