Configuring LESS on Mac OS X and PhpStorm 6.0.3

I tried to set up the watcher for LESS according to this article I found online: http://trevweb.me.uk/configuring-less-on-mac-os-x-and-phpstorm-6-0/

When I did the install for Node the final screen gave me this information:

Node was installed at


npm was installed at


Make sure that /usr/local/bin is in your $PATH.

I can see the npm at /usr/local/bin/npm but when I try to confirm this by running the which command in the Terminal I get this repsonse [Note - I am not good with the Terminal and totally rely on help from others in this area]:

-bash-3.2$ $ which npm
-bash: $: command not found

When I look at the preference for the LESS watcher I have a /usr/bin/less but not a /usr/bin/lessc as per the image below from the article.

Can someone help me sort this out?
