I install myeclipse on my fedora19 with the command "sudo sh",after installed,I can execute it with the root user only. When I double clik the eclipse executable icon,it show like this "The configuration area at '/home/zhang/Myeclipse/MyEclipse 10/configuration' is not writable. Please choose a writable location using the '-configuration' command line option.". Is anybody here can help me? Thanks in advance.

It seems that the program got installed in your home directory, and you installed it as root (by using sudo), that's why you can't run it as normal user.

Please, uninstall it and then install it again, but without sudo.
