This question already has an answer here:
I would like to install a bunch of packages (glogg, libprotobuf7, libleveldb1, libsnappy1, libhdf5-7) on an Ubuntu system on which I do not have root privileges. (I understand that this can be achieved by forcing the downloading and installation to take place on my home directory for example).
I would like to do this as fast as possible, e.g using
apt (rather than manually searching the web for a link address to the package, then
wget-ing it, then opening the tarball, then reading the INSTALL file to install correctly etc).
Is there a way to do this?
How can I install a package without root access? has a 1st answer that assumes that we have the
.deb file already downloaded. This is not my case (and if you know of a way to get it quickly without scouring the web, I'd love to know).
