There will be issues with permissions if you install as root.
Are you hoping to share one Seadas 7 install among multiple users? That is generally not a good idea -- the GUI needs a lot of resources so multiple users will bog down, and since SeaDAS 7 is not generally used that way there may be conflicts waiting to be discovered by your users. You should install SeaDAS separately for each user in
<user_N>is replaced by your actual username, from your normal user login. If you are doing installs for multiple users you can use
sudo --user=<user_N>to do the install as if you were <user_N>. If there is limited space in the user home directories, you can install SeaDAS to a disk partition that has more space. For most people, the space needed for SeaDAS 7 is much smaller than the space needed for the data being used with SeaDAS, so there is usually no problem finding space for multiple SeaDAS installs.
