Yes, it must be run with sudo.

sudo was changed some time ago. don't know is it ubuntu-specific change
or global, but now by default it blocks access to some information
required by client. I had same problem. You must use some sudo switch.
I think you must use "sudo -E .....". (if I'm wrong, just "man sudo" and
look for suspicious options which could "allow" or "pass" something).
After installation, don't forget to check created script and verify all
pathnames. Also I prefer to run client "su"'ed to my user account
(otherwise you'll could have problems with files created with root-only
permissions in your home directory).
