Im quite new to magento2 but i think i have managed to finally get it setup.
However i created a child theme with parent as Magento/Blank.
But then i realized that there was no original theme files in the apps/design/frontend/Magento ?
I have read around the forums and everyone is pointing me towards running this command in the root directory ''/bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy''
Which i have done but it tells me that there is '-bash /bin/magento No such file or directory'...
I have tried several different things, and tried to run it as magento user and root user but nothing is working.
Please can anybody advise further. Many thanks
Solved! Go to Solution.
I am not clear with your question. But I try to give answer for what i understood.
First, to deploy static files in Magento 2, use bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy. I find that your command starts with slash( /bin/magento ), it checks bin/magento in root folder.
Next, You can't find any files in app/design/frontend/Magento. Instead everything will be available in Vendor/Magento directory. You should have manually copy the files from Vendor/Magento/theme-frontend-blank directory.
