Installing npm on vagrant

I tried to install and use npm in two ways, but I get only errors.

Installing npm by normal way:

vagrant@precise64:~$ npm install
npm ERR! Couldn't read dependencies.

npm ERR! Error: ENOENT, no such file or directory '/home/vagrant/package.json'
npm ERR! You may report this log at:

Trying to install latest version:

vagrant@precise64:~$ npm install -g npm@latest
npm http GET https://registry.npmjs.org/npm

npm looks like it's already installed. Go to your project root and:

npm init

It'll walk you through making a package.json file, then you can

npm i whateverpackageyouwant

to your heart's content.
