ZD 2.0 Beta 4 Linux - Potential Installation Script Issue
In the past, I was able to install the ZD backend, and the user account in my /home directory. For Beta 4, this option does not seem to be available because the installer requires the user space to not be a parent directory of the backend. Even if my
So I installed ZD client to opt/zimbra/zdesktop as root, and installed the user account (as a normal user) in my /home directory.
When I execute ZD, the ZD screen displays with the spinning circle, but never gets past that.
I have restarted Fedora 13, and still no dice.
I tried installing to /opt/zimbra/zdesktop as a normal user, but the same problem occurs.
Using the shortcut string, and executing it from the command line, I get the following output:

I still had a tarball of Beta2, so I chmod 777 the install.pl script, and began installation as a normal user. I attempted to install to the default /opt directory. The script displayed a permissions error.
Choose the folder where you would like to install Zimbra Desktop's application files [/opt/zimbra/zdesktop]:
Installing application files...mkdir: cannot create directory `/opt/zimbra': Permission denied
The Beta4 script *DID NOT* display an error when attempting to install as a normal user.
I think there might be a bug in the Beta4 install script? When I installed Beta2 to /opt as root, the program correctly started.
Yeehaa! happy like a hippo..
Thanks buddy. All these time I was starting the installation as a normal user with 'sudo' and then continuing installation in just one step, for the normal user. That was the problem like jmhe pointed out.
Its perfect now .. this time I started by switching to root and completed the first step of installing system files for zdesktop in /opt/zimbra/zdesktop and by saying 'No' to root install. And then like it said, I switched to normal user and ran '/opt/zimbra/zdesktop/linux/user-install.pl' to complete user installation for normal user. That was directed to /home/fyd/zdesktop.
There was a bit of circling like before when ZD came up .. which actually got me hopeless for a while but then woooooosh .. the candy red came up! Brilliant work guys, falling for zimbra again and again. Thanks jmhe I owe you a hug. A bear hug! Wishing you the best.
