      Description

      uDig cannot be installed on gnu/linux as a shared application.

      If user alice installs uDig under /foo, even if Alice grants permissive settings on the application with
      chmod -R a+w /foo
      when user Joni attempts to run uDig with
      /foo/udig/udig
      then uDig launches and the JVM right away reports the error reported by Prof. Keitt in his message to the mailing list:

      ***************************************************************************
      I tried RC9 today and two things I noticed:

      1) If I download and unzip everything into /opt/udig as root and then
      run uDig as an ordinary user, it dies with JVM error code=13.
      Apparently uDig needs write access to its installation directory in
      order to work. That makes no sense in a Linux environment where app
      directories are generally not touched by users.

      *****************************************************************************

      Note also that this category of bugs could be altered from 'installer' to 'installation' issues.

        This is not a bug. You have to run uDig with the -configuration option to run it as a shared program. For example:

        udig -configuration ~/.udig

        These are standard eclipse configuration options. I will change the bug to be

        "Add a page for command line options for uDig"
