I've installed EOSIO.cdt from here . But I can't access cleos program and getting :

Command 'cleos' not found, did you mean command 'cleo' from deb cleo Try: sudo apt install

Firstly I installed Debian Package then build from scratch but in all cases I'm getting that command not found. Also my folder /usr/local/eosio.cdt/include even doesn't contains any cleos dir or files.

  • complete the install step after finishing building

  • Can you share how are you trying to use the cleos command? Apr 24, 2019 at 10:01
  • I've completed building by installing: sudo ./install.sh/.

  • Any cleos command returns that. For example: $cleos wallet create

If you're using Debian, you can install using the install method provided in the docs:

wget https://github.com/EOSIO/eos/releases/download/v1.7.0/eosio_1.7.0-1-ubuntu-18.04_amd64.deb
sudo apt install ./eosio_1.7.0-1-ubuntu-18.04_amd64.deb

// test
nodeos -v
// v1.7.0


As others have previously mentioned, nodeos, cleos, and keosd are all installed with eos. If you have an issue with your install, please share your OS information.


Cleos isn't installed with the Eosio.cdt. You need to install Eos, it contains and will install Keosd and Cleos, too. There's currently no (easy) way to build and install Keosd and Cleos without building Eos itself.

If you don't want to go through the full Eos-installation Eos-Canada has built a lightwheight alternative named Eosc.
