hubot rocket.chat adapter install permission problem
When i get to the step of
sudo yo hubot --owner="OWNER <email@example.com>" --name="bot" --description="Bot" --adapter="firstname.lastname@example.org" , PuTTY gave me error saying i don’t have permission to some npm file, I researched online, looks like it is a common problem. So i used https://docs.npmjs.com/getting-started/fixing-npm-permissions#option-2-change-npms-default-directory-to-another-directory
Option 1 to change the permission
and this is what i got from PuTTY, I get the feel this is the right direction, but detail is wrong, can anyone tell me what went wrong?
