Can someone help me please?
I need the E-Mail Gateway in Joplin.

Thx a lot!

You can fix this with using --unsafe-perm while installing. It has to do with the default user being set to ‘nobody’ and you are using the root user.

So you can install using:
npm install -g --unsafe-perm joplin

If you want some more background on the error or want another solution you can find them here:

Thanks @2343455teasdfasdfsad !!! the install runs long but that worked.
I can now run sucessfully /root/.npm-global/bin/joplin

Also a systemwide call works now by the help of:
sudo ln -s /root/.npm-global/bin/joplin /bin/joplin
