# Install on linux without sudo?

I'm using a shared cluster (running Ubuntu 16.04) upon which I don't have sudo access. Is there anyway I can still install Mathematica to /usr/local/Wolfram? If I use another path will everything still function properly?

After proceeding and using my home directory, I recieved this warning:

WARNING: Avahi Daemon is not active on your system so some Kernel Discovery features will not be available.

• I am also interested in an answer to this. Did you solve it? – becko Sep 20 '18 at 22:03
• The warning message regarding Avahi Daemon looks quite innocuous to me. – zakk Sep 21 '18 at 21:37

You can use a different path, for example /home/user5601/Wolfram/Mathematica/11.3 as the installation directory. When asked where to put the executables, you can select /home/user5601/bin (assuming this directory exists). Then make sure to add /home/user5601/bin to your path. Done.
