That piece of software should be available in Software Center so just find it there and install it.

Why don't you have admin? Is it a company machine, a shared server, something else?
It is possible to install as a non-admin but depending on the situation it can be complicated.

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.

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 have a question.

If it is a library machine, does it belong to you or to the library? If it doesn't belong to you, is it ethical for you to install software on it.

why not? note that, I want to use the resources of the system in order to use the software, the same as I do with internet, with other software, etc

(ofcourse the software I want to install is 100% legit)

Why not? Because it's not yours.

You reasoning would allow you, as a guest in my house (or, let's say, as a customer in my store) to rearrange the furniture or add a new end table. I find it troubling.

Just my two cents.

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.
