Hi, I have installed Aris Express on a Linux box at work. I have observed that installation creates a directory on system wide temp folder (/tmp/ARISExpress). It seems that installer catch the value for temp folder from System.getProperty("java.io.tmpdir"). The first user can install and run the application without any problems. The problem arises when a second user wants to run the application (can install without problems), some actions can not be completed because the /tmp/ARISExpress directory has write permissions only for the first user that installed the application. Reviewing the log files there are various IOExceptions showing permission denied at that temporary directory.

A workaround is to assign write permission to all the world (chmod -R a+w /tmp/ArisExpress).

But i would like to know if there is another way to get rid of this issue. It is possible to modify installation and run options to store in the user tmp folder instead of system wide folder?
