  • 'global' installation on *nix

    I put the whole roo direcotry in /usr/share. I chowned it root:root recursively. I chmodded it 0755 recursively. I made a soft link to it: /usr/bin/roo=/usr/share/roo-version/bini/

    No good, can't write to a cache directory below the install directory. So I just chmodded it 0777 recursiviley and it worked (only one on home machine).

    What actually *IS* the right way to make it usable by all users on a system, but not have the cache or other files written by roo in its own install directory read/write/executable by others on the system?

    shouldn't roo but putting such files in $HOME/.roo/cache, etc ?

    I put the Roo directory in a directory allowed to me as user (in particular, in something like /home/me/Applications/spring/roo-1.1.5.RELEASE/) and I made a ln -s to that/bin/ (sorry, I'm in windows right now, but you know what I mean) from /usr/bin/roo

    It works in Ubuntu and Mac.
