Nodejs on Ubuntu with the awesome "/usr/bin/env:node: No Such file or directory"

Just when you are finished installing nodejs in your fresh shiny Ubuntu box and issue your first cordova create app command you get this annoying

/usr/bin/env:node: No Such file or directory

Which looks like this

And you think what went wrong.
Apparently this stupid error is because you decided to do sudo apt-get install nodejs

In short Ubuntu's default code repository renames node as nodejs to avoid some weird conflict. And you just got caught in between.

Fortunately a one line symlink is enough to fix it for us.
So just issue the following and you rare good to go

sudo ln -s /usr/bin/nodejs /usr/bin/node
