I installed as root (using sudo) Amplifier XE2011 update 7 on Ubuntu 11.10 successfully. I couldn't find in docs on whether it is recommended to use the software as root (e.g., to launch "amplxe-gui" as "root")?
I indeed tried as a normal user and it seems to start, but just want to make sure before I go into a project.
I prefer to run as a non-root user.
Hope this can be clarified.
