How to install Node-Red on Ubuntu 15.10

Follow this instructions:

In terminal, run following commands

	sudo apt-get update
	sudo apt-get install nodejs
	sudo apt-get install npm
	sudo ln -s /usr/bin/nodejs /usr/bin/node
	sudo npm install -g --unsafe-perm node-red
	cd $HOME/.node-red
	sudo npm install node-red-node-serialport@0.0.5

To install other nodes, do it from the same directory /.node-red and using the command 7.

To run node-red, in terminal, launch it with the command

	sudo node-red

I am using sudo because I need the root access to serial port.
