If you try to install a package globally on Linux through NPM you'll see a very common error message saying you don't have permission to access the folder, this is caused by your package manager and the way npm links it's binaries. When it's installed with sudo it requires sudo for it's operations which is really dangerous for installing applications like this, so today I'm going to show you a couple of simple fixes to deal with this such as nvm, webi and a brief mention of npx.
