How to install current stable nodejs on Ubuntu

I wanted to install nodejs on my Ubuntu isntall (13.04) but the repos only held quite an old version 0.6. With some Google help I ran into https://github.com/joyent/node/wiki/Installing-Node.js-via-package-manager#ubuntu-mint

Just follow these instructions and you’ll have nodejs current stable running in no time.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties python g++ make
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nodejs
