Installing Node/NPM on Ubuntu

Posted by Jon Stuebe on .

Ran into an issue today where I couldn't get npm to install to find the correct packages after doing a normal node/npm install. I just kept getting the error:

Error: Cannot find module <module>

Quickly, found that you need to use a different repository before installing:

apt-get install python-software-properties
apt-add-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js
apt-get update

Once you do that you should have node and npm installed correctly and should be good to go.
