I read this article late last night that I save god knows where. I looked for it just now bec I wanted to ask you guys if I can trust this writer, he's got more where that was coming from, and it's handy to have a reliable source to look things up when you folk inexplicably are asleep ;).
He says that one should AVOID installing stuff in "sumo" whenever possible. He says it creates all kinds of files and folders then that can complicate and even mess up your system. Is this true?
The thing he didn't explain is HOW do you install anything without it? Since it demands root privileges. How do I go around it and is it worth the trouble?
For example, right now I am trying to install my VPN. They give you a guide tailored for each operating system that exists, or just about, I guess. What do I know?
So their steps are very explicit, they give you the commands to put into the terminal.
Should I ignore this and double-click on it like I would in Windows? Is this the alternative to installing without sumo?
