Install Node.js on Linux Mint 15

The node.js website offers an installation with the well known package manager apt. Unfortunately that didn’t work for me. Every time I tried it, it stopped working with an error message.


So I tried it to install it the manually way.
First of all, make sure you have all dependencies installed:

sudo apt-get install g++ curl libssl-dev apache2-utils

sudo apt-get install git-core

Now run the following commands, which firstly clone the git repository, configures node, makes node and install it.

git clone git://

cd node



sudo make install

If all went successfully, node should run smoothly.

    Leider war dieses “Gefrickel” irgendwann auch der Grund, wieso ich nach über 3 Jahren wieder von Linux weg bin :-/
