How do I share my applications installed on RedHat Linux with my othere non-root login accounts, for example, I've installed StarOffice 5.2 on my RedHat Linux OS as root. How do I share my StarOffice app with my other non-root login accounts? Please help me...........

Hi Randy,
Per Justin Lee, a fellow Linux Guru who I work with:
Its been a while but it goes something like this...
1. You install StarOffice as root - sounds like you have this licked.
2. As a regular user go to your installation i.e.,
/opt/.../where_star_office_is_located/setup or so_install
wherever the install file is located.
3. Run the install file (as a user, not root), and install it to the user's home. This will install and save their desk top options etc.
I will check tonight when I get home to make sure this is correct, its close though.
Best Regards,
Matt
BTY - if you find out before I do, please post what you find out because this is a good question!

Hi Matt,
It worked! I run the "/opt/../staroffice/setup /net". Take note of the parameter /net. StarOffice Readme file said i have to type /net to make a network install, after installing network version, every user(including root) who wants to use SO should run setup (without the /net) to install StarOffice on their account.
Thanks!
Randy
