installing nodejs without sudo

Post by xpro » Sun Oct 14, 2018 8:27 pm

I need to install Nodejs without sudo, I need it for Appium which states that Nodejs needs to be installed without sudo.I am following this guide ... f8edc02d13

and one of the steps says, I would download Nodejs and then extract it to /usr/local

Code: Select all

cd /usr/local
tar --strip-components 1 -xzf /home/username/Downloads/node-v8.2.1-linux-x64.tar.gz
But I get "Cannot mkdir: Permission denied" when I try to extract without sudo. What should I do?
