No, but IIRC the installer only needs root when installing for all users.

Exec is set, not sure what else would be needed.  And the error is an 
exit code, rather than the refusal to even try to launch that I get 
without exec permissions.

Not even just me - with both apps I'm just running:

<appname> -ui hopes of getting far enough for the app itself to complain that 
it's missing args.

I wonder if this has to do with the new dependencies in the Linux 
engine.  They were supposed to be optional, only needed if you need 
graphics features, or at least that's my understanding from Mr. 
Waddingham.  But the timing of the change, happening during 6.1->6.5, 
seems suspiciously relevant.

But even with that I'm mystified, since it also fails on my laptop with 
the full Ubuntu GUI installed.

The CLI installation info is a bit sparse - do you have an example handy 
for a proper Installer command line?  I can't imagine how missing args 
could result in a signal 11 error, but I'm willing to try anything.

Thanks for your help on this.
