Why is the default install dir /opt.....??

Why not /usr/

Why is there a question about the root/user situation??
.dep package
You probably meant deb... It is typical to install 3rd party proprietary (and therefore binary) software in /opt, e.g., this is where Google-Earth and Adobe Reader installs to, nothing weird about this. Also easy to manage via dpkg.

root/user: If you install as root (or "super user") you may not have permission to access varicad.lck, so you won't be able to use the software unless you change the permissions of this file to 666 (-rw-rw-rw)
