Question User Profile Issues

I tried installing DB2 client tools and I did so as root, now when other users login they get error when they invoke an application. To me it mostly looks like profile issue.

Any general suggestions in this context on how to install any application in Unix/Linux system would be of great help.

How exactly did you install it and on what platform? How can you be sure that the two are related?
