Yes. Puppet is /usr/bin/puppet

You generally run puppet as root. Nothing in staging or production
references anything to do with vagrant. Our vagrant projects reference the
Puppet git repo.

It's got some bits that I can't publish, but these are the crucial parts;

This installs puppet 2.7.3 on a fresh Ubuntu 12.04 server.

apt-get update && apt-get -y install git-core ruby facter && \
wget http://www.puppetlabs.com/downloads/puppet/puppet-2.7.3.tar.gz && \
tar xvf puppet-2.7.3.tar.gz && \
cd /root/puppet-2.7.3 && ruby install.rb

This is how you apply a checked out working copy of a puppet repo. Your
structure might vary, but the differences should be pretty obvious.

puppet apply --modulepath=/tmp/puppet/modules /tmp/puppet/manifests/site.pp

Have fun
