Ubuntu - Install Laravel Installer Through Composer

Steps

sudo apt-get install php-zip
composer global require "laravel/installer"

Add composer's system-wide vendor bin directory to your path by adding this line to your .bashrc.

PATH="$HOME/.config/composer/vendor/bin:$PATH"

If you don't see it there, check $HOME/.composer/vendor/bin

Testing

You should now be able to create a new Laravel project by just using the command:

laravel new my-project
