Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Distribution: Debian Sid AMD64, Raspbian Wheezy, various VMs
You could try to compile the software and run it from your home directory. To do so you would follow the instructions given for compiling.
You ought really to ask permission to install software though and it may be that installing your own is blocked or against policy.
Distribution: pclos2016, Slack14.1 Deb Jessie, + 50+ other Linux OS, for test only.
Like already said : Complicated.
If the machine is loaded with development tools : Not impossible.
With no compiler : You cannot build a compiler without a compiler.
Avogadro : The build prerequisites are 40 or more packages.
A local python must be built. And "python-sip" + "python-numpy".
And : http://packages.ubuntu.com/source/lucid/avogadro
(The red dots mark the required packages.
Those packages also have numerous dependencies.)
I as a sysadmin for that library would be very unhappy finding that someone istrying to circumvent the protections applied to install software not meant to be there. Please don't mess with library computers, it is not yours and if you screw up then nobody can use it and sysadmin must come to clean up your mess.
Get yourself a laptop, install anyting you wish into it, go to library and use the public wifi, that is probably available.
Also consult with library personell and mention that you think that some valuable sofware is missing on their computer and isi it possible to get it (or any thing similar) installed on that computer?
But the fact that library guest does not have ANY rights in library computer, is a norm. It is a public place and basically just a kiosk.
