I just tried to install
npm on Debian Stretch. I installed node like decribed here.
nodejs-legacy too I got the
node command working but
npm command still won't be found.
So, I tried to install it manually via
apt-get install npm but it just tells me that it can't find the package. Next I tried the "Fancy Install (Unix)" from npm repository which fails with
install npm@latest fetching: https://registry.npmjs.org/npm/-/npm-5.5.1.tgz module.js:327 throw err; ^ Error: Cannot find module '/tmp/npm.1272/package/bin/read-package-json.js' at Function.Module._resolveFilename (module.js:325:15) at Function.Module._load (module.js:276:25) at Function.Module.runMain (module.js:441:10) at startup (node.js:140:18) at node.js:1043:3 added 1 package and removed 1 package in 0.45s /usr/bin/npm -> /usr/lib/node_modules/npm/bin/npm-cli.js /usr/bin/npx -> /usr/lib/node_modules/npm/bin/npx-cli.js + firstname.lastname@example.org updated 1 package in 1.21s It worked
Although it creates the link for the
npm command the links are broken.
Does anyone an idea how I can get
One more thing:
I have the visual studio code repositories in my sources.list which uses node too. Is it possible that that's a reason why it downloads a node package without npm when I do
apt-get install -y nodejs?
Thanks in advance for every answer.
