To install npm on a Linux system, you will need to have Node.js installed first. If you do not have Node.js installed, you can install it using the package manager of your Linux distribution.


For example, on a Debian or Ubuntu system, you can use the following command to install Node.js:

1
sudo apt-get install nodejs


On a CentOS or Fedora system, you can use the following command to install Node.js:

1
sudo yum install nodejs


Once you have Node.js installed, npm will also be installed automatically. You can check the version of npm by running the following command:

1
npm -v


This will print the version number of npm to the console.


Alternatively, you can also install npm by downloading the latest version of Node.js from the official website (https://nodejs.org/) and following the installation instructions provided there. This will install both Node.js and npm on your system.

To install npm on a Linux machine, you will need to have Node.js installed first. If you don't have Node.js installed, you can install it by following these steps:

  1. First, update the package manager cache by running the following command:
1
sudo apt update


  1. Next, install Node.js by running the following command:
1
sudo apt install nodejs


  1. Once Node.js has been installed, npm should also be installed automatically. To verify that npm has been installed, you can run the following command:
1
npm -v


This will output the version number of npm, indicating that it is installed and working properly.


Alternatively, you can also install Node.js and npm using a package manager like nvm (Node Version Manager). To install nvm, follow the instructions on the nvm GitHub page: https://github.com/nvm-sh/nvm#installing-and-updating. Once nvm is installed, you can use it to install and manage multiple versions of Node.js and npm on your system.
