I am a little new to Linux and currently running Mint 17. I want to have more control over where everything is installed (i.e.
/home) and see if I can install to
/root without editing
/etc/apt/sources.list. (specifically Eclipse Luna and RStudio).
I can just use
dpkg but what is the appropriate location in
/root? guess that's just a long winded way to ask where
apt-get downloads to, and can I just install to that location without editing any files?
