Once you have installed composer add the composer bin folder to your path to execute commands such as laravel new project and valet park

The command append it to your existing path on a Linux Mint / Ubuntu or equivalent system is:

echo 'export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/.config/composer/vendor/bin"' >> ~/.bashrc
