I've been trying for a day or two to get the latest Intel Fortran (and C++) compilers to install properly in Ubuntu 12.04. The issue I'm experiencing is that when I do the install, the file permissions on the default install folder only allow reading by the root user. For example, the /opt/intel directory has 700 for the permissions, and this is similar for most of the subdirectories/contents. As a result, normal users can not only not read the directory containing the compiler executables, but they also cannot run the script to setup the compilers (although the script has my user permissions). I've tried running the install.sh script as myself authenticating via sudo, and as root (both via sudo and su), and no matter what the /opt/intel directory is only readable by root. Any ideas?
