Default How to properly setup JDownloader 2 in Ubuntu?

Hello. I am using Ubuntu 22.04 LTS and trying to use JDownloader 2.

I download the installation script and run it by typing "sudo sh". Setup completes and it asks whether to launch the application. I select to launch and JDownloader 2 launches and works properly. Next time I launch the application from the launcher (without sudo elevation), application starts but the "Tools" menu on the top menu bar (File, Settings, Tools, Help) is grayed out and non-clickable. Also when I paste links, it crawls, but does not find or list any packages to download. Only way to get the application to run properly, is to launch it by "sudo /opt/jd2/JDownloader2". When launched this way, the "Tools" menu is clickable, and the application can find and list packages.

Is this the proper way to set up and use JDownloader 2 on Ubuntu? Is there an alternative way to use the application without sudo elevation?

Thanks in advance.

Also, "java --version" output is below.
