Is there any reason SDK Tools v2.0.0-Beta2 need root user permissions to install?
I'm more than happy that SDK-tools are now available for Linux but what bother me I a need for root user permissions while installing the tools.
I've successfully installed the tools using fakeroot (just got a notice on post-install, I guess it's related to PATH modifications).
Are we really need to grant root access just to install the tools?

For Mac you need to also and this is most likely needed for installing files.Mitchell Simoens @SenchaMitch

Guide me installing Sencha SDK Tool.
I have tried to install Sencha SDK Tool in my ubuntu machine using command line.After following the installation steps at the end it is showing the following error:Chromium can not be run as root.
Please start Chromium as a normal user. If you have previously run Chromium as root, you will need to change the ownership of your profile directory.Can you please resolve this issue.

I'm curious about this too. If I run ./SenchaSDKTools-2.0.0-beta2-linux-x64.run --help, it says that the default "Installation Directory" is inside my user's home directory. So it doesn't seem like it should need root access. I don't have root on this machine, so it would help if this wasn't required.

Environment not set when installing as root user
Default install to:
Updates the following in /root
Should instead update /etc/profile.d/sencha.sh

Looks like 2.0b3 still requires root, even when installing in a custom directory. I hope this can be fixed in a future release.

This worked for me:
