Installing the Node-Red Ignition nodes

Pretend I know nothing about Linux or Node-RED…

When below says to “run the command in your Node-RED user directory”, where exactly is my node-red user directory?
I installed node-red from this script: https://nodered.org/docs/getting-started/raspberrypi

And trying to add the node-red Ignition nodes from:

I ran this from here: /usr/lib/node_modules and it added a new folder, but the node didn’t appear in the nodes list… and from what it looks like, it should be in a different directory :thinking:
Where’s the “in over my head” with a straw to breathe emoticon?

Nvm, I got it…
I needed to be in: /usr/lib/node_modules/node-red/node_modules
and then run that command. I also needed to stop and start node red to get it to show up (clearly I have no idea what I’m doing :slight_smile: )
