Installing Software

You can install any software you'd like in your sandbox, as you have sudo access! However, only the files stored in /home/nt-user/workspace (~/workspace) will be stored, and they must be less than 50 MB. So if you install software outside of this directory, here's how you can keep it "installed":

  1. First, install the software using the terminal as you usually would.

  2. Run history | cut -c 8- > ~/workspace/history.sh to take your previously entered terminal commands and save them to a file called history.sh in your working directory.

  3. Make any edits necessary (e.g. removing lines with unnecessary commands).

  4. Copy and paste the remaining commands into your startup script.

This startup script will be executed each time you have a new sandbox loaded.
