Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-7281) "cordova plugin add" issues nonsense EACCESS error
Date Mon, 25 Aug 2014 18:34:59 GMT


Luigi commented on CB-7281:

Same issue here.

It seems that once cordova is installed, updated through 
sudo npm install -g cordova

it changes owner to user tmp dir.

I just deleted it (after checking nothing relevant was there) and all went fine.

> Fetching plugin "nl.sylvain.cordova.osc" via plugin registry
> Error: EACCES, mkdir '/home/teo/tmp/npm-20870-r97koGWy'
> That doesn't make sense, as /home/teo is my home directory (I was running the above command
as "teo"). There's no reason why that mkdir command should get an access denied error (if
that's what EACCESS means).
> This worked:
> $ sudo cordova plugin add nl.sylvain.cordova.osc
> however, there's no reason why sudo should be needed.
