I am looking to change the directory to which the Ubuntu app store and terminal installs programs.
The main reasons are for the factor that I use a lot of programs and when I add a program to Ubuntu, I tend to add it's repository, so I can get that program's updates. The SSD I am looking into is only 500 GB and the hard drives are 4TBs. And i also am looking to reduce SSD writes so I don't run out of E/P cycles and kill my drive. And I am looking to also have an automatic backup make back ups for programs.
Is there a way to change the install directory to another location, or possibly /home?
