A default Mathematica installation performed by the super user should allow other users on the system to run Mathematica as well. It may be helpful for you to describe in more precise terms what happens when a regular user invokes either the "math" or "Mathematica" scripts. The wording of any error messages you encounter may provide some clues as to where the launch is failing. -- P.J. Hinton Mathematica Programming Group paulh at wolfram.com Wolfram Research, Inc.
