Do not run cubic as root

Registered by Cubic PPA on 2016-02-26

Currently, Cubic is run with admin privileges, because the application performs numerous tasks that require root privileges (mount/unmount files, kill processes, etc.). The files browsers opened by cubic are also opened with root privileges, and this could be dangerous, because user could accidentally delete or change system files. We need to find a solution so that either the program no longer requires sudo (unlikely), or we drop root privileges whenever file browser windows are opened. (How to deal with deleting o modifying cubic working files that are owned by root?)
