How to Install a non-system-level binary blob as a fake linux system without VM


How can I install software on GNU/Linux so that when it is run, NOTHING it does exists after it terminates? I don't want to / can't use a virtual machine for speed reasons.

It would be even better if I could turn the changes ON / OFF. Such that When ON, the program was installed and usable, and when OFF nothing that involves the software "exists" on the machine (without requiring the program to be reinstalled every-time). I want / would prefer at least, changes made during "OFF mode" to be persistent even during an "ON mode".

Note that software is non-system-level. Also, while I would prefer permissions or a(perl / bash etc) script(s) to run / handle all this, I should note that my system is currently setup using LVM2.

System: XUbuntu 14.04.02, Dell Inspiron i3531-1200BK 15.6-Inch Laptop

You could run it in a container.

Moved to the Linux Software forum (not an apparent Linux Security issue).
