Can you pleas e advise how can I install pathway tool on Linux on High Performance Computer, where I do not have root privilege? I can not use apt-get on HPC, required by the install guide, as shown on the error message I don't have root. Thanks in advance!

While Pathway Tools itself does not need to be installed as root, it depends upon libraries and packages that MUST be installed PRIOR to installing Pathway Tools. If you can request the system administrators of your cluster install the pre-requisite packages first, you don't need root to finish the Pathway Tools install.
