I am new to ubuntu (linux).
I installed nodejs for a project.
Recently I am getting this error on npm install
Error: "pre" versions of node cannot be installed, use the --nodedir flag instead
For this I searched and found a stack link below as

Under the solution it asks for the directory where nodejs is installed and currently i am clueless where the nodejs is installed.

EDIT: The answer from your link is reffering to the path of node source code, not nodejs binary.
