Licence not activated under Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Posted by aborsic on 2016-10-28 01:29


I have a commercial license for Komodo IDE. I have just installed Komodo under Ubuntu 16.04.1, accepting a trial license. After that I have downloaded the license activation script and tun it with root privileges (sudo). The script says "ActiveState license installed successfully" but Komodo IDE still says I am running the trial license and I have 19 days left ...

Can you please advise ?

Best Regards,

When using root (sudo) to install, the root account instead got the license. You need to install the license again but without sudo. There should not be any problems because the license will install itself into your personal user folders.
