At work, we have a Ubunut server to which people from intranet connect for using certain tools installed there. If certain user wants to install a particular software on Ubuntu but does not have root privileges, i.e. installing it only in his home area or something, is it possible to do so using Ubuntu package manager: apt-get install If yes, how?
I know other way would be get the source of the software build it yourself, and install the binary in home area of the user, but would like to avoid that route.
The reason we would like to allow this is 1) That tool is very specific to that project and would not want to install system wide. 2) There is no other intention of subverting or hacking.
