tsserver shows 'No such file or directory' error for npm path

See original GitHub issue

TypeScript Version: 2.8.3

Search Terms: npm "No such file or directory"


Run following command from terminal:

$ tsserver

Expected behavior:

tsserver starts without any errors or warnings.

Actual behavior:

Following error is shown in stderr:

/bin/sh: /usr/local/Cellar/node/9.4.0/bin/npm: No such file or directory

Playground Link: N/A

Related Issues: None

This is a problem related to detecting default npm path in tsserver. At least Node v9.4.0 does not install npm to the same directory as node command. It is installed in /usr/local/lib/node_modules/npm like other normal npm packages.

same issue on my end, it tries to find npm in [tsserver] /bin/sh: /opt/local/bin/npm: No such file or directory but it’s in /usr/local/bin/npm

It should work. But making users create a symlink in system directories is not a fix for this issue, I think.
