Never user sudo to install a program without the package manager of your distribution. Doing this you deploy files across your system that are unknown to the package manager. It is very likely, that you will run into problems sooner or later, if you try to install a package and the package manager detect that there are already files with the same name and location.

The cleaner way is to use conda. Here the first part of the tutorial I wrote some time ago might be useful for you.
