sudo: port: command not found

If you install mac ports under Mac, then run sudo port install "app_here" 

and you recieve this error (the title), i have the solution. One word. $PATH.

Open your .bashrc file (if you dont have it, create it), and add these lines

export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin/:$PATH
export MANPATH=/opt/local/share/man:$MANPATH

(the first, for the port command and the second for the manpages
of port command. Yea, i know its obvious... :P)

Might seem obvious, and it certainly is, but that is the reason for which I haven’t been able to use the port command for a very long time.

For me wasn't obvious. :)
Thanks for passing by!
