    Hello

    We are trying to get the Linux version installed and running.
    Is there any way to launch the editor without giving root access to the sandbox process?

    Thanks

    No, the chrome-sandbox executable must be owned by root with suid permissions.

    Hi,
    We have successfully been using this now with local machine installs. However moving the install to a network mount is now throwing the following in editor log (the "non running as root" pop up does not show, instead it hangs)

    4755 on chrome-sandbox. SUID set - exactly the same as local install under /opt/
    ll /network/install/unity/linux_64/5.5/Editor/chrome-sandbox
    -rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 23715 Nov 25 16:20 Editor/chrome-sandbox
    stat -c "%a %n" /network/install/unity/linux_64/5.5/Editor/chrome-sandbox
    4755 Editor/chrome-sandbox

    Check the /etc/fstab on the system. On the partition that contains Unity(and the chrome-sandbox), is there nosuid option? If it is there, remove it. That's what solved this problem for me.
