Hi,

eacces = can't access files = permissions problems.

A number of fixes here http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Error_messages
halfway down. A common problem is running as root once & then having
logfiles, dbfiles, or similar owned as root & you are trying to run as
user couchdb.

There's already a couchdb (desktopcouch) on ubuntu by default; I'm not
an expert on this but this might be related to some of your issues.

you might want to try @jhs https://github.com/couchone/build-couchdb
as a quick start - it builds a standalone couch & shouldn't get in the
way of existing stuff.

A+
Dave
