Dear All
  When running NWCHEM6.8 on Ubuntu17.10, the following error appears:

"mpirun has detected an attempt to run as root.
Running at root is *strongly* discouraged as any mistake (e.g., in
defining TMPDIR) or bug can result in catastrophic damage to the OS
file system, leaving your system in an unusable state.

You can override this protection by adding the --allow-run-as-root
option to your cmd line. However, we reiterate our strong advice
against doing so - please do so at your own risk."

 This ia caused by the required sudo downloading of the necessary  enviromental files.
How can I overcome this and make NWCHEM6.8 work on Ubuntu17.10?

 Thanks a lot!
Very Best Regards!
