If you develop with Node.js and you want to be sure to have the latest stable version, luckly there is a PPA for it. All you need is to follow these instructions:

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties python g++ make
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nodejs npm

That's it!

    Hi, just wanted to comment that for me, the last line resulted in an error:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    nodejs : Conflicts: npm

    When I ran it without the npm, it worked.
    sudo apt-get install nodejs

    And npm was installed together with nodejs automatically.

    Clean, concise, crisp tutorial! Together with Marya’s comment, it worked like charm. I had to waste several hours following other tutorials while ago. You saved me from hours of agony. Thank you, Andrea!
