I'm trying to install Photoscan Pro on an Ubuntu 14.04 system.  However, it won't let me activate the software.  I'm using an Administrator account, yet every time I try I get the error "Administrator privileges are required to activate Agisoft PhotoScan". 

I know PS is seeing the serial as legitimate, because the OK button turns green and lets me click, however the activation doesn't go through.  Any help from the agisoft team would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

I am runing PS on Ubuntu 12.04 without problems. There is a folder Agisoft in /etc/xdg wich should hold a file like PhotoScan Pro.conf, That is the licence File. It is created by the Installation procedure. I assume the only reason why Agisoft needs admin priveledges during installation is the fact that this file is stored in Linux system dir, where the standard users is not allowed to write or store files.

cheers
