i am trying to implement cytoscape in my lab and have installed it on the centralized server which we access via ssh from own terminals (with x11 forwarding).
currently cytoscape 3.8.2 is installed (as root) in /opt/ and executing it as non-root users works. however, if a second user launches it while an instance is already running, it throws error:
karaf: There is a Root instance already running with name Cytoscape 3.8.2 and pid 121496. If you know what you are doing and want to force the run anyway, export CHECK_ROOT_INSTANCE_RUNNING=false and re run the command.
is there a way to have a centralised installation of cytoscape and have multiple users access it from their own terminals?
or is it safe to do:
