Neverwinter Knights - install as root and play as user

Post by exbed » Sat Sep 27, 2008 21:09

Hello,

i just used the loki intaller nwn_1.68_box-german.run with the 3 in a box set (one DVD with nwn, HotU and SoU). the readme advised me to install as root or as normal user. i took the root-option. now i get problems if i want to play as normal user. for example the buttons have no text. if i run the game as root (i had done that only for testing puposes) the button-texts were available. is there a chance to install this game as root and run this game as normal user?

I do not believe that we recommanded to install as root user :)
There is no clean way to do what you want but you could use chmod to give all users write access.
