Glue closet door guide on carpet

How to install a closet sliding door guide over a carpet without drilling a hole into the carpet and floor. See below pictures.
Thanks for any tips.

Nope...not going to work...not with any sort of glue anyway. Do you have wood under the carpet? If you don't want to cut the carpet for some reason, you'll need to get some screws that won't grab and unravel the carpet fibers...pretty sure they have them somewhere.

If that won't work, then you might need to consider bifold doors vs bypass doors.

Actually...just thought you could probably use a spiral or ring shanked nail instead of a screw. Won't harm the carpet at all and should hold well enough for this application.

Most of the houses I've painted that had bypass doors had a piece of 1x2 attached to the floor prior to carpet and the guide was screwed to the 1x2. This also set the guide up higher than the carpet so it gets full contact with the door.

I don't know if there is wood under carpet. Is it wood or concrete under carpet? Here the picture.

The picture doesn't tell us. Don't you know if your house is on a slab? You can left a corner of the carpet to see what is underneath.

It is on a slab, so underneath should be concrete.
