FAQ
On debian, I've run the following command to symlink `node` to the
repo-installed `nodejs`:

sudo ln -s /usr/bin/nodejs /usr/bin/node

This will allow you to use the distribution's version of node while keeping
compatibility with the other applications you've mentioned.

The binary file for node.js project is called "node", and all scripts use
that. This is not an issue in jslint/jshint, etc.

But debian/ubuntu/etc. distributions used to have their own executable
named "node", so they renamed node.js binary to "nodejs" thereby causing
this issue.

I think the majority of users are on linux here, but we're using version
from nodejs.org which is named correctly.

Imho, just use "nodejs-legacy" package if it works for you. Its name is
misleading: it is just a symlink, there is no "legacy" in it.

Hi, I'm trying to learn JavaScript fast.

I had some trouble today trying to get Tern, JSLint and JSHint setup.

With some help on an IRC, we discovered I installed a node utility which
was not related to nodejs.

This is like a bug, as, if I install nodejs, and try to execute 'node', it
tells me it is missing, and to install blah (assume I didn't read it
carefully).

So I install node utility. And things don't work. I can execute nodejs
command. But those apps Tern etc. won't work.

The solution is to remove node package, and install nodejs-legacy.

Should the maintainers of these projects be made aware of this issue? Does
legacy mean the node command is being phased out? I believe their packages
look for node command.

Maybe the majority of users are on OS X, and so this troubleshooting issue
in't included in documentation, blogs etc.
