Well, we all were new to this at one time. You'll get used to it if you're going to be a coder.

Here's the modified script with the executable bit set for you. Just extract it in a directory, open a terminal there, and run

Code: Select all

sudo ./setup_8.x
What it does is add their repo and their key to your software sources, so if you have Debian's older node.js installed, you'll see their 8.9.4 as an upgrade.

We could probably add it as an option to our package installer, but that would need a bit of discussion.

Hmmm...maybe I can use their build format instead of Sid's to get successful packages for 8.9.4. Launching build.
I know this is an old thread but since I was looking for how to install node.js in MX I found it and just wanted to add that

Code: Select all

sudo ./setup_version_number.x
didn't work for me but

Code: Select all

sudo sh ./setup_version_number.x

EDIT: Well, it didn't work after all, it seemed like it'd worked but it didn't; nmp: coomand no found. So re-reading this thread I realized that node.js is in the test repo so I installed it using that and now it worked. I wanted latest which is 11 though, but guess 8 is ok too ;)
Without each other's help there ain't no hope for us :happy:
