Installe Node 12.16.3


I need help installing this “old” version of node. The diet-softwrare install node 14, which is not working with my apps.
I tried to install node manually, which did not change the used version.

Would be great if anybody can post the needed commands.

Thanks a lot!


many thanks for your question. What did you tied to install it manually? The following should work

curl -o /tmp/node.tar.gz
cd /usr/local && sudo tar --strip-components 1 -xzf /tmp/node.tar.gz
rm /tmp/node.tar.gz

File name could be different depending on your device.

Install ‘n’.

Easy to switch between versions of node.js then.
