Sometime, you connect to a server and a library is not installed, or maybe you are a student in an university
and you need to install some application that would take a snap using
apt, but there is one problem… you
are not root!
Here I introduce a (hacky) solution that you can try out to install packages in your user area, with the comfort of apt command.
First clone the notroot repository:
Now add this line in your
And reload bash.
You can now give a try to
notroot install [your package], for example:
Everything will be installed under your
notroot/ directory, and the
bashrc script you sourced above do additions
to some environment variables (like
$LIBRARY_PATH…) in order to make it work.
