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 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

I think there might be a bug in the Beta4 install script? When I installed Beta2 to /opt as root, the program correctly started.
