On Ubuntu I have two accounts one for me and one for my sister. I downloaded a game off the Ubuntu Software Center but I can only play it when logged in to my account (The one I download it on) but now my sister wants to play it on her account. Is there a way to have it on two accounts with out downloading it again as I have a limited dowload amount. I have had a look around and seen that it could not be down but that was on an older system.

Is this to do with permissions? Maybe Right Click and go on the permissions tab?
