[one-users] Ownership and Permission Issues

I have installed the latest stable release of OpenNebula (2.2.1).


I overlooked the part about installing it as oneadmin user, and instead
installed it as "root" user. Now when I try to install the VMWare addon, I
get permission denied errors :


cp: cannot create regular file `/usr/bin/tty_expect': Permission denied

chmod: cannot access `/usr/bin/tty_expect': No such file or directory

cp: cannot create regular file `/usr/bin/onevmware': Permission denied

There was a problem with the installation


So I changed the ownership of all the folders (/etc/one, /var/lib/one etc)
to oneadmin. I even changed the ownership of the "one" commands in /usr/bin.


However I still get this error. Please help me out here.


P.S. I did not change the ownership of the files in /usr/include, coz I
wasn't sure which files were related to open nebula.
