I just installed Ubuntu. I downloaded the anaconda python package and am trying to install it,
at some point the terminal says:
Anaconda will now be installed into this location: /home/*username*/anaconda - Press ENTER to confirm the location - Press CTRL-C to abort the installation - Or specify an different location below
So I wanted to install in
/opt (which I heard was an appropriate directory), but the terminal then says:
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/opt/anaconda’:Permission denied ERROR: Could not create directory: /opt/anaconda
I don't see how I can use
sudo here as the installer runs then
I tried making the directory myself first, bit then it gives the fact that the dir exists as an error.
What can I do?
