What would you like to do?
  1. Navigate to http://nodejs.org/download/ and on the Linux Binaries (.tar.gz) row click to download the 64-bit version of the current latest release.

  2. Say you've downloaded node-v0.10.7-linux-x64.tar.gz into the Downloads directory. Then, open the terminal and type the following:

$ cd ~/Downloads
$ mkdir -p ~/local/node
$ tar xzf node-v0.10.7-linux-x64.tar.gz -C ~/local/node --strip-components=1
$ echo '# Node Enviroment Setup' >> ~/.bashrc
$ echo 'export PATH=$HOME/local/node/bin:$PATH' >> ~/.bashrc
$ echo 'export NODE_PATH=$HOME/local/node/lib/node_modules' >> ~/.bashrc
$ . ~/.bashrc
  1. No step 3. That's it.
