Hi all, I am a systems administrator at University of Southern California and I am attempting to include SageMath-7.6 in our lab image (around 400 computers, thousands of students). Students log in with non-administrative active directory accounts,thus when launching SageMath-7.6 they get a "read-only" error. How significantly does this affect their use of the application? If I chmod -R 777 on the SageMath-7.6.app this corrects the issue, but (security issues aside) how does this impact other users that will be using the application and making changes to it? If application changes and configurations are not being stored in the user's profile then how does the application isolate changes from multiple users? Thanks in advance for your assistance.
