Unable to install mean-cli in linux mint 17 using npm

I have npm, nodejs installed already. But when I try installing the mean-cli (on linux mint 17)I get the following error. From the error it does seem like the install script for mean-cli is using the command ‘node’ vs ‘nodejs’ (for linux-mint). I am not sure how to get it to use the right command.

I searched through google and posts related to mean.io here at SO but couldn’t find any pertinent info. Any help is appreciated.
