Trouble with install

Hi all,
I have also been posting to issues on github (, but haven't heard anything in a few days, so I thought I'd try here, too.
We initially tried the install on ubuntu, and I'm trying the vm now.

IT has been helping with the installs. From what I understand, the hnn_user has too many permissions for general use (It would give permissions on our network data?). So it sounds like IT copied that user and modified the permissions. That copied user is able to run simulations on the software. If I login to the VM as my user, I can open the software but the simulation fails. There is a pop up that says the simulation failed, but I can't catch any more of the details. The terminal shows:
Starting simulation (4 cores). . .
Simulation exited with return code 134. Stderr from console:

It seems maybe I have a shell initialization issue with my user? I looked at the .bashrc for the hnn_user and I see
export CPU=$(uname -m)
export PATH=$PATH:/home/hnn_user/nrn/build/$CPU/bin:/home/hnn_user/hnn_source_code
export PYTHONPATH=/home/hnn_user/nrn/build/lib/python

So I edited my .bashrc to include these lines, but I'm seeing
mschendel@HNN-VM:~$ which python

Any suggestions? Any other information I can provide or things I can check?
Thank you!

In case it helps, the hnn_user_copy (the one that works) has the same output for which python, so that's not the problem.
