    Default ZD2 install path

    Hi just a quick question,

    The Linux beta install for Zimbra Desktop defaults to /opt/zimbra/zdesktop which will not usually be writeable for a user. The wiki and faq suggest not to run the install as root. How should the circle be squared?

    Run as root and install to the /opt/ location or run as user and stuff to a user home directory? Presumably the /opt route is the way for multiuser access so it feels like it should be a sudo or root install....

    Thanks!
