I installed StarOffice 6.0 Beta as root and now I can only run it as root. What did I do wrong? As myself I can run it, but as soon as I try any action in the program, it crashes. If I run it as root, no problems. Any ideas?
Perhaps only root has execute permission. You need to set it executable for other users. chmod +x nameOfExecutableThatRootCanRun should do it. Try running man chmod at the command line if you are not familiar with it. HTH, Joe
Actually, I think that it's more of a matter of "it runs under whichever user you install it as". StarOffice 5 seemed to be the same way. Curious, since Sun should certainly know multi-user environments.
