comment Considering Package Node with Ubuntu
Agreed that node/nodejs packaging is a disaster. nvm is the only reasonable solution on Ubuntu, in my opinion.

comment Node modules installed but not available
Should "installed not from nvm" be "installed node from nvm"? Based on your screenshots, it looks like that's the case. While the answer below is definitely correct, you'll also want to make sure that the command which node returns a directory.

comment What does the command name “dd” stand for?
An IBM knowledge base article supports data definition as the original name of the statement in JCL.

Seems plausible, but Wikipedia cites a source that is 404.

comment Error with Node and Gulp
Very strange. HOME should be set by default on Ubuntu. You can find more about default and custom environment variables in Ubuntu here.

comment Error with Node and Gulp
It's weird that HOME isn't set. When you run $HOME in terminal, does it say anything? However, here's the documentation on the default COMPOSER_HOME env variable, and there are lots of guides on the internet for setting variables in bash.

+1 for potentially dying HDD. I ran into read-only fs errors a lot when my HDD was on its way out.

comment Is there a way to install jHipster on Ubuntu 14.04?
I have no experience with jHipster, but your warning is simple stating that you need a newer version of npm. There are plenty of ways to keep the Node stack up-to-date on Ubuntu... maybe try this?

comment Does updating Ubuntu 14.04 to 15.04 affect packages that I have previously installed?
If you want to avoid potentially breaking changes in node, you can always manage Node versions completely separate of regular package management using nvm. You can even have multiple Node versions installed for easier testing.

comment Error with Node and Gulp
There should be a bower.json file in that frontend folder, but bower is claiming it can't find it (and I don't see it in your ls). It's definitely there in the repository though...

comment npm install -g not working
This is why I can't stand the "official" Node installation instructions for Ubuntu. You shouldn't have to (or want to) run third-party node modules with admin privileges. I strongly recommend installing Node with nvm.

comment nodejs express scaffold app fails silently
Could you add some details about how you installed Node? Do you have to use sudo when you npm install modules? If you run which express what does it tell you? Also, downvoter, care to explain yourself?

Why did someone vote to close this as not about Ubuntu?
